Appalachia and America

Autonomy and Regional Dependence

Edited by Allen Batteau
In this collection of fourteen essays, scholars of Appalachian culture and society examine how the people contend with and adapt to the pressures of change thrust upon them. Appalachia and America will appeal to a broad range of people interested in the southern mountains or in the policy issues of social welfare. It deals cogently with the newest form of conflict affecting not only communities in Appalachia, but urban and rural communities in America at large—the struggle for local values and ways of life in the face of distant and powerful bureaucracies.
