Ambiguity, surprise, and gender analysis characterize The Promise of the New South, which bristles with unexpected insights: Charles Macune, a leader of the anti-plutocrat Farmers' Alliance, borrows $2,000 from a railroad-lawyer descendant of John C. Calhoun, the very image of the southern plutocracy; the chapter entitled "Faith" discusses southern religion but ends with two disconcerting images: W.E.B. Du Bois's anguish over his child's death, then a young man committing suicide. Gender pervades the discussion of segregation; sectional reconciliation begins with baseball; white resentment of well-educated, assertive young black Southerners has political consequences. In a synthesis that captures the late 19th-century South in its bewildering complexity, Ayers does get the New South right.

Although Woodward was not able fully to integrate black Southerners into his analysis, Origins of the New South remains among the rare histories that at age 40 still reward readers. Thanks to its extraordinary vitality, Origins of the New South is the monument that towers behind Edward Ayers's Promise of the New South; it is also a monument that Ayers's exciting new book is bound to replace.

The great divide in The Promise of the New South separates country folk from townspeople, a contrast that takes race into account without becoming its prisoner. This reorientation assumes that Southerners were a heterogeneous people riven by conflict and pulls Southern history together across lines of race, class, and gender. In this regard, The Promise of the New South, a nominee for the National Book Award, marks a major advance in the desegregation of Southern history.
