Four UGA titles have strong reviews in the most recent Journal of American History:
THE BIG TENT -- "superb and revelatory"
ENTREPRENEURS IN THE SOUTHERN UPCOUNTRY -- "Well-argued and linked to broad historical issues, it is a model community study that deserves a wide readership."
CLOSER TO TRUTH THAN ANY FACT -- "Refreshingly lucid and cogent . . . . I look forward to periodically rereading 'Closer to the Truth Than Any Fact' and to wrestling with its conclusions."
CARRY IT ON -- "A brief review cannot do justice to Ashmore's skill in weaving together the economic and political aspects of a still-unfinished effort to remake Alabama along more just and egalitarian lines. Her book, like Kent Germany's NEW ORLEANS AFTER THE PROMISES, signals a new level of breadth and sophistication in civil rights scholarship."

For those sans Mississippi ancestry, your new Uncle Craig's renditions of this pepper-kicked cheese spread and deeply savory, lard-rich biscuits is all you'll need. Instructions are thorough, simple and forgiving of variances.”
