Reviews

"Topics are covered in two-page spreads that are visually and intellectually stimulating, as the author conveys information that reveals the diversity of the people, places, and events of the region." -- Booklist

"For the general reader who wants a short yet comprehensive introduction to the region, there's no better guide than 'The Historical Atlas'…few books so concisely convey to the general reader the anguished, ambiguous essence of the Southern experience." -- Los Angeles Times

"Routledge has produced two new historical atlases that should be popular reading material and useful reference sources in most public and academic libraries and in some school libraries… The attractive format, the graphics, and the text make them good reads. Some libraries will want two copies of each, one reference and one circulating." -- Booklist

"I was particularly impressed with the scope and creativity of The Routledge Atlas of the American South. One series of maps clearly shows Depression-era economic disparities between the South and the rest of the country by showing the ratio of people to cars, radios, telephones and tractors." -- Seattle Times, Dec. 16, 1999

"Atlases are generally about as interesting to most people as watching paint dry, but The Routledge Historical Atlas of the American South is an exception. Written by historian Andrew K. Frank, the book is a fascinating look at how geography and population have defined the South." -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Andrew K. Frank's, The Routledge Historical Atlas of the American South, which in its five chronologically arranged chapters covers the history of the region from before Jamestown to Johnny Cash, is an admirable addition to a host of recent books on the South for he general reader. Frank… has managed in his maps, illustrations and text to elucidate concisely and imaginatively the complex social, economic, religious, military, literary and racial history of the region and to offer his own thoughts on the persistence of and changes in Southern character and identity at the dawn of the 21st century.. . For the general reader who wants a short yet comprehensive introdiucton to the region, there's no better guide than The Historical Atlas…few books so concisely and easily convey to the general reader the anguished, ambitious essence of the Southern experience." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

"For the general reader who wants a short yet comprehensive introduction to the region, there's no better guide than The Historical Atlas…few books so concisely convey to the general reader the anguished, ambiguous essence of the Southern experience." -- Los Angeles Times
