Dixie Be Damned: 300 Years of Insurrection in the American South

by: Neal Shirley and Saralee Stafford

Publisher: AK Press (2015)


Staff Pick by comrade: QW

A fascinating, important book, Dixie Be Damned explores 300 years of southern history that highlights struggles (often multi-racial)against white supremacy and the economic shifts over time that informed the rebellions. This is a politically relevant interpretation of southern history that is well worth thinking about.
