Sponsored by The Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi

James G. Thomas Jr., managing editor
Ann J. Abadie, associate editor

When the University of North Carolina Press joined with the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi to publish the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture in 1989, a pioneering reference work was born. The first reference book to deal exclusively with an American regional culture, the Encyclopedia has served as a model for many similar projects at the state and regional levels. In the years since the Encyclopedia was published, globalization, economic transformations, and other cultural shifts have profoundly changed the South.

Now, the Press and the Center have come together again to publish The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture, a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the original reference that reflects these changes and the newest scholarship about the region. This edition will be published in a series of 24 individual volumes based on the thematic sections of the original Encyclopedia. The volumes will appear over the course of five years, with two or three volumes published each season.

The series is now complete, with the publication of Volumes 23 and 24 in the Spring of 2013. You can pre-order the entire set at a significant discount-- just http://uncpress.unc.edu/browse/page/815click here.
