Highland Heritage: Scottish Americans in the American South, Celeste Ray.


1 Highland Heritage: Scottish Americans in the American South
Celeste Ray.
280 pages, 5 3/4 x 9 1/4, 35 illus., 4 maps, 1 fig., append., glossary, notes, bibl., index , paperback, University of North Carolina Press
Each year, tens of thousands of people flock to Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina, and to more than two hundred other locations across the country to attend Scottish Highland Games and Gatherings. There, kilt-wearing participants compete in athletics, Highland dancing, and bagpiping, while others join clan societies in celebration of a Scottish heritage. As Celeste Ray notes, however, the Scottish affiliation that Americans claim today is a Highland Gaelic identity that did not come to characterize that nation until long after the ancestors of many Scottish Americans had left Scotland.
Ray explores how Highland Scottish themes and lore merge with southern regional myths and identities to produce a unique style of commemoration and a complex sense of identity for Scottish Americans in the South. Blending the objectivity of the anthropologist with respect for the people she studies, she asks how and why we use memories of our ancestral pasts to provide a sense of identity and community in the present. In so doing, she offers an original and insightful examination of what it means to be Scottish in America.

About Author
Celeste Ray is assistant professor of anthropology at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.

Reviews
"[A] combination of resource compendium, exhaustively detailed anthropological study and astute cultural criticism. Extensive research, clear prose and respect for her subjects will win this authoritative work favor among Scottish American enthusiasts and academics alike."--Publishers Weekly

"[Ray] recreates in detail the annual Highland games and gathering at Grandfather Mountain, N.C., for those of us who don't know our sporrans from our claymores. Hint: you might be cleaved in two with the second if you insult a Scotsman for wearing the first."--A Nota Bene selection of The Chronicle of Higher Education

"Essential reading for anyone interested in the transnational dimensions of Scottishness and the increasingly voluntary nature of cultural identity. Highly recommended."--Scottish Affairs

"It is hard to imagine a more comprehensive account of what has gone on in the Scottish American heritage community in recent decades. . . . [Ray] has a sound grasp of Scottish history, and of the actual history of the Highland Scots in Carolina. . . . Fascinating."--Journal of American Studies

"The strong pull of the homeland has manifested itself in a surprising number of American southerners. Ray's scholarly and readable examination of that pull offers insight into this fascinating minority group. Ray focuses upon North Carolina's Cape Fear settlement . . . . But she also extends her study to all of the southern states to demonstrate the pride of those whose connection to Scotland goes deep. . . . Just as fascinating as her scholarship are the delightful additions to the book. Numerous photos . . . show how a number of 'ancient' traditions are preserved. If you want to know what they wear under those kilts, this is the text for you."--Bloomsbury Review

"[This book] should be of great interest to historians in general as an illustration of the creative ways in which history is interpreted and taught outside academia. It should be of particular interest to students of Appalachia."--Journal of Appalachian Studies

"A thoughtful, investigative publication, Highland Heritage will interest both American and Scottish readers."--Scots Magazine

"Examines the nature of heritage and the ways in which people reclaim and change a 'past' in order to connect with forebears as well as others in the present. . . . Anthropologists, ethnographers, and students of Southern studies will find Ray's work valuable."--Choice

"Ray, attracted by the persistence of ethnic identity that links Scotland with North Carolina, offers a fascinating portrayal of the Scottish American manifestation of this heritage movement. . . . Richly informative about the power of heritage in postmodern society. . . . Readers interested in the creation and power of heritage, whether Scottish or not, will find this a stimulating book."--Journal of Southern History

"Ray has produced a fascinating account of a comparatively modern (post WWII) movement amongst Scottish Americans to construct a heritage. . . . As a textbook, this would be a thought-provoking and enjoyable addition to local history, oral history, and ethnic history syllabi, as well as those in anthropology and sociology."--H-Net Book Review

"Celeste Ray's sensitive, thorough research examines two centuries of history and myth. Her perceptive, convincing, and powerful analysis of the evolution of 'Highlandism' breaks new ground. Anyone who cares about Scottish culture, heritage and tourism must read her book. Highland Heritage is essential reading for Scots all over the world."--Margaret Bennett, Glasgow University School of Scottish Studies

"Celeste Ray's carefully researched and well-written ethnographic study adds to our understanding not only of the Scots at home and abroad, but also of the process of ritual itself and the ways that immigrants everywhere symbolize, enact, and reinvent their cultural worlds. It will prove valuable to scholars and students in anthropology, sociology, history, American studies, and to all readers interested in the history and culture of the American South and Scotland."--Gwen Kennedy Neville, author of Kinship and Pilgrimage: Rituals of Reunion in American Protestant Culture and The Mother Town: Civic Ritual, Symbol, and Experience in the Borders of Scotland

"Not until the exhaustive research of anthropologist Celeste Ray has any serious attempt been made to explain the overzealous love of tartans and clans by Scottish Americans. Now, Ray has done so with skill and aplomb."--Donald F. McDonald, cofounder of the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games

"By subjecting Scottish heritage events to academic scrutiny, Celeste Ray has brought a valuable perspective to celebrations such as the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games."--Hugh Morton

544 pages, 6 x 9, 46 illus., 4 maps, notes, bibl., index , paperback, University of North Carolina Press
Since its original publication in 1987, Like a Family has become a classic in the study of American labor history. Basing their research on a series of extraordinary interviews, letters, and articles from the trade press, the authors uncover the voices and experiences of workers in the Southern cotton mill industry during the 1920s and 1930s. Now with a new afterword, this edition stands as an invaluable contribution to American social history.

Reviews
"The genius of Like a Family lies in its effortless integration of the history of the family--particularly women--into the history of the cotton-mill world. . . . This eloquent reconstruction of the cotton mill world allows us to understand and to pay homage to those who fought and lost."--Ira Berlin, New York Times Book Review

"Like a Family is history, folklore, and storytelling all rolled into one. It is a living, revelatory chronicle of life rarely observed by the academe. A powerhouse."--Studs Terkel

"A work of scholarship that is both authoritative and most refreshingly undogmatic. . . . [The authors'] sympathies lie, as well they should, with the ordinary people whose labors made the mills run, but they have sufficient breadth of mind to understand that it takes all kinds to make a world, or a mill; as a result their story is populated not by heroes and villains, but by people."--Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World

"A superb history of work and workers' culture in southern Piedmont textile mill villages from the 1880s through the General Strike of 1934. In clear and compelling prose, the authors weave the threads of social, labor, family, business, and cultural history into a rich tapestry that reveals the human dimensions of regional economic transformations over half a century."--American Historical Review

"A warm, sensitive, richly textured analysis of the role of the family, and family culture, in the social changes that came in the wake of the industrialization of the Piedmont South. . . . A deeply moving book."--International Labor and Working Class History

"Like a Family is the most important study of southern cotton mill workers we have ever had."--Reviews in American History

"A wonderfully textured narrative of the emergence of mill culture and how it was shaped by the forces of class, race, and region. . . . Like a Family is a powerful historical account of the rise of southern industry that uses gender both to relay men's and women's experiences and to explore the ways in which gender shaped their lives."--Signs

"Like a Family is that rare compelling book, a delight for the academic and the public, with much to say to both."--Journal of American History

"Diligent research and fine writing has produced a landmark work that someday may be considered one of a handful of indispensable works on the New South."--Journal of Southern History

"Here is labor history in intensely human terms. Neither great impersonal forces nor deadening statistics are allowed to get in the way of people. If students of the New South want both the dimensions and the feel of life and labor in the textile industry, this book will be immensely satisfying."--Choice

The Origins of the Southern Middle Class, 1800-1861, Jonathan Daniel Wells.


4 The Origins of the Southern Middle Class, 1800-1861
Jonathan Daniel Wells.
344 pages, 6 x 9 1/4, 15 illus., 9 tables, append., notes, bibl., index, paperback, University of North Carolina Press
With a fresh take on social dynamics in the antebellum South, Jonathan Daniel Wells contests the popular idea that the Old South was a region of essentially two classes (planters and slaves) until after the Civil War. He argues that, in fact, the region had a burgeoning white middle class--including merchants, doctors, and teachers--that had a profound impact on southern culture, the debate over slavery, and the coming of the Civil War.
Wells shows that the growth of the periodical press after 1820 helped build a cultural bridge between the North and the South, and the emerging southern middle class seized upon northern middle-class ideas about gender roles and reform, politics, and the virtues of modernization. Even as it sought to emulate northern progress, however, the southern middle class never abandoned its attachment to slavery. By the 1850s, Wells argues, the prospect of industrial slavery in the South threatened northern capital and labor, causing sectional relations to shift from cooperative to competitive. Rather than simply pitting a backward, slave-labor, agrarian South against a progressive, free-labor, industrial North, Wells argues that the Civil War reflected a more complex interplay of economic and cultural values.

About Author
Jonathan Daniel Wells is associate professor of history and chair of arts and sciences at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, North Carolina.


Reviews
"In this pathbreaking study of the antebellum South, Jonathan Wells recovers that which most historians have presumed did not exist--the foundational elements of a middle class. Introducing us to previously neglected storekeepers, bankers, teachers, doctors, ministers and their families, he brings to the fore middling southerners whose shared interests and values were fundamentally different from those of the planter elite and the rural yeomanry and urban laborers. Promoting educational reform, organizing commercial conventions, and leading benevolent institutions, debating societies, and lyceums, these residents of small towns and larger cities played a considerable role in shaping the trajectory of Southern public life. In Wells's reckoning, the 'Old' South is replaced by a 'New' South that prepares the ground for its post-Civil War successor."--Mary Kelley, University of Michigan

"With cogency and learning, Wells has made a powerful case that the origins of southern bourgeois society can be located not in the postwar New South, but in the midst of the antebellum slave South. His claim will be controversial, but his book will enrich our understandings and change our thinking."--Michael O'Brien, University of Cambridge

"The great strength of Wells's account of the origins of southern middle class is his judicious balance between structure and volition. As a social historian, he finds identity to have been socially constructed, and as a student of ideas and consciousness he appreciates the uniqueness of individual choices by men and women whose diaries and letters he has read with sensitivity and sympathy. Readers will appreciate the complementarity of culture and experience in his crafting of this book."--Robert M. Calhoon, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

"Jonathan Wells's fine new study greatly complicates and enriches our understanding of the slaveholders' South. By moving outside the familiar triad of aristocratic planters, enslaved blacks, and poor yeomen, Wells calls into question the conventional wisdom about Southern ideology, social development, and politics before the Civil War. His book is challenging and essential reading for anyone interested in Southern history--and why the war came."--Sean Wilentz, Princeton University

8 Slavery in the American Mountain South
Wilma A. Dunaway
364 pages, 228 x 152mm, 32 half-tones 9 maps, paperback / softcover, Cambridge University Press
Series: Studies in Modern Capitalism


Temporarily unavailable - no date available

Wilma Dunaway breaks new ground by focusing on slave experiences on small plantations in the Upper South. She argues that the region was not buffered from the political, economic, and social impacts of enslavement simply because it was characterized by low black population density and small slaveholdings. Dunaway pinpoints several indicators that distinguished Mountain South enslavement from the Lower South, by drawing on a massive statistical data base derived from antebellum census manuscripts and county tax records of 215 counties in nine states, slaveholder manuscripts, and regional slave narratives.
