Multiculturalism in the South is more than black and white, as this collection of essays shows. Cultural Diversity in the U.S. South examines the often overlooked histories of various immigrants who settled in the South, their relations with one another, and their enormous impact on the region.

From Native Americans to Latinos, from Indochinese to Jews, this volume follows minority immigration from its early history into the current era of globalization of the South. Cultural Diversity in the U.S. South provides the most in-depth analysis yet written about the political, social, and economic conditions of the many different ethnic groups and offers fresh explanations to the questions concerning why some have become powerful voices in southern society more quickly than others.
