Summary
  • Eugene D. Genovese offers a series of engaging and highly provocative reflections on history - particularly southern history - and politics in the cultural war. Genovese criticizes the Left and the Right with equal vigor. Calling political correctness "a new version of totalitarianism," he scorns the betrayal of Black Studies programs across the country, saying that "unless the stagnation and ghettoization of Black Studies programs are arrested, we shall, however inadvertently, condemn our universities and professions to many years of shamefaced complicity in an increasingly ominous resurgence of white racism and black despair." Other essays explore the political culture of the Old South and the centrality of religion to both southern and Afro-American history. Of particular interest is an extended treatment of the religious thought of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the King plagiarism scandal
  • In "The Question," a searing essay that has already provoked heated debate, Genovese argues that a commitment to presumed "larger goals" led the radical Left to ignore, and therefore become complicit in, the mass murders of communism. And he suggests that today a similar blindness is fostering the promotion of totalitarian measures on our campuses. "We are today indeed engaged in a cultural war," writes Genovese. "To win that war will require a new and hitherto unimaginable coalition across political and racial lines."
