The Southern Nation: The New Rise of the Old Southby Thornton, R. Gordon
Retail Price: $19.95
Issue: Summer 2001
"Southerners have a right to a government that has their consent," R. Gordon Thornton writes in this neo-Confederate manifesto. "The American Empire has lacked our consent for more than 135 years." Although largely devoted to interpreting contemporary politics, this book includes an account of constitutionalism, the Civil War's origins and outcome, and Reconstruction that may intrigue both Lost Cause proponents and those with a scholarly interest in southern nationalism.
