    Despite the homogenization of American life, areas of strong regional consciousness still persist in the United States, and there is a growing interest in regionalism among the public and among academics.

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Kentucky occupied an unusual position with regard to slavery during the Civil War as well as after.

    In 1952, Frank L. Klingberg's article on introvert and extrovert American foreign policy moods projected an American turn toward introversion in the late 1960s. After this came to pass, Jack Holmes began to develop a theory of how these moods might work in a more specific sense. His mood/interest theory points to a basic conflict between politico-military... more...

  • Evil Necessityby Harold D. Tallant

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    In Kentucky, the slavery debate raged for thirty years before the Civil War began.

Harold D. Tallant shows how this view... more...
