The Improbable Era

The South since World War II

In this concise yet comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and crisply written study, The Improbable Era places developments over the last three decades in Southern economics, politics, education, religion, the arts, and racial revolution into a disciplined framework that brings a measure of order to the perplexing chaos of this era of fundamental change in Southern life.

Reviews

"In this concise yet comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and crisply written study, Roland places developments over the last three decades in Southern economics, politics, education, religion, the arts, and racial revolution into a disciplined framework that brings a measure of order to the perplexing chaos of this era of fundamental change in Southern life."—Choice

"A superb survey of the post-World War II South."—East Texas Historical Association

"An intelligent, comprehensive, and provocative study which illuminates both a region of the United States and a time racked by ferment and change."—Journal of Southern History

"Roland provides a knowledgeable discussion of agriculture, religion, music and drama, and calls attention to a net gain of immigration into the South."—Publishers Weekly

"The most systematic and searching overview of the postwar South yet available."—The Southern Quarterly

"The strength and variety of the author's arguments make impossible a capsule summary of the book; the very clarity and ease of style help conceal the density of thought and concentrated labor that went into it."—American Historical Review
