Please pardon if this has been a recent discussion. I am teaching a 1-semester, History of the American South class in the Spring, which I have not done in several years. Can anyone recommend a single-volume history of the American South as a course textbook? I have several older single-volumes, but these are now out of print.
Any suggestions will be gratefully appreciated!

The Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill produces a monthly podcast, co-hosted by Acting Director Rachel F. Seidman and graduate students in the program. Recent episodes have covered feminism in the South, LGBTQ activism in the South, and segregation in the rural south. This month's episode, produced and co-hosted by graduate student Carol Prince, looks at oral history as a tool for movement building. Each month we discuss the technical, pedagogical, ethical, and methodological challenges of learning history by talking to those who lived it.
