[Cabell], MacDonald, Edgar E., JAMES BRANCH CABELL AND RICHMOND-IN-VIRGINIA . University Press of Mississippi, 1993. NEW copy. Hardcover in dust jacket, still in shrinkwrap. 373 pages. "Scholars of southern literature of the US will welcome this meticulous and thorough study. Students of southern writers will need this book to understand the development of Cabell's career in the context of his contemporaries, especially Ellen Glasgow. . . . MacDonald does a fine job of explaining that Cabell was more than a writer of fantasies and that his work was grounded in his southernness. Somewhat disappointing, however, is MacDonald's failure to explain just how Cabell influenced great writers such as Faulkner, who are mentioned but not discussed in ways that might illuminate Cabell for readers unfamiliar with his work. As MacDonald admits, Cabell is largely forgotten and thought of as a minor writer, even though in his early career it seemed he would endure as an important figure." OUT OF PRINT. $45.00

"At the height of Davis's career, his father died; Davis, the unmarried eldest son, gave up his career to assume responsibility for his family, including his brother, 16-year-old Jefferson Davis, future president of the Confederacy.

The author explains Davis's moderate views on slavery, his struggle to hold the family together during the war, and his legal fightto regain Hurricane during Reconstruction. This book is an important social history that illustrates the trials and tribulations of a contemporary southern family during the war." OUT OF PRINT. $30.00

Fink, Gary M. and Merl E. Reed (editors), RACE, CLASS, AND COMMUNITY IN SOUTHERN LABOR HISTORY. University of Alabama Press , 1994. NEW copy, hardcover with dust jacket, still in shrinkwrap. 320 pages. From the publisher: "Under the leadership of Gary M Fink and Merl E. Reed, Georgia State University has hosted the Southern Labor Studies Conferences approximately every two years. The conferences have yielded two previous volumes, published in 1977 and 1981, and this volume, which contains selected papers from the seventh conference held in 1991. As evidenced by the quality of these essays, the field of southern labor history has come into its own. Research interest is peaking: the practitioners are younger scholars, and much of their work emphasizes the new social and political history. While the topics covered in this volume usually reflect that methodology, their chronology ranges from the antebellum period to the 1970s, suggesting the variety of sources and changing research approaches that can be used in rendering new meaning to the past. Although the subject of gender was generally a minor theme in these sessions, work now being done leaves no doubt that at some future conference gender will attract a commanding amount of attention. In introducing and describing their respective areas, the associate editors, Robert M. Zieger (textile workers), Joe W. Trotter Jr., (African Americans), and Clifford M. Kuhn (labor politics), have provided a rich historiographical background. The essays in this volume will enlighten the reader on many important aspects of the history of southern labor, and they will also raise new questions to be explained by other scholars and future conferences." $40.00

Still fighting abolition, Rayner became a member of the Republican Party and after the war held minor federal offices. Kenneth Rayner's illegitimate black son, John, was provided with a college education by his father, entered North Carolina Republican politics, married, and removed to Calvert, in Robertson County, Texas." $45.00

What there was of good in the Agrarians he brings forth with grace and conviction, and where the movement was lacking he does not hesitate to put his finger. Add to this the fact that as an interpretive critic he has few peers, and you have an exemplary--and perhaps permanent--book." [James Dickey].
