Description

In his sweeping coverage of the Mississippi story - from prehistoric times to the present day - Professor Busbee deftly combines narrative and topical chapters to address major political, economic, social, and cultural developments. Having taught Mississippi history in college classes for more than thirty years, Dr. Busbee approaches this unflinching account by asking why Mississippi - with its rich natural and human resources - continues to compare unfavourably with other states in such critical areas as per capita income, adult literacy, and public health. "How and why", he asks, "did all of us who call Mississippi home get where we are? What past mistakes might we hope to correct and what innovative approaches might we take to enhance the future of the state?" The book seeks answers to these meaningful questions through a careful assimilation of information gleaned from a multitude of secondary and primary sources. It also includes original maps and tables as well as a multitude of photographs, selected sources by chapter, a Selected Bibliography of Mississippi History, a series of appendices, and a full subject index. In sum, this innovative survey provides a great new resource for all instructors of Mississippi history, a common base of information for students pursuing knowledge and meaning in the study of their state's past, and a comprehensive and engaging read for anyone interested in knowing more about the fascinating history of the Magnolia State.
