For at least two centuries, the South’s economy, politics, religion, race relations, fiction, music, foodways and more have figured prominently in nearly all facets of American life. In A New History of the American South, W. Fitzhugh Brundage joins a stellar group of accomplished historians in gracefully weaving a new narrative of Southern history from its ancient past to the present. 

W. Fitzhugh Brundage is the William Umstead Distinguished Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Laura F. Edwards is the Class of 1921 Bicentennial Professor in the History of American Law and Liberty at Princeton University. Jon F. Sensbach is professor of history and chair of the Department of History at the University of Florida. 

Michael McDonnell is Professor of History at the University of Sydney, which is built on Gadigal lands that were taken from them without their consent, treaty, or compensation. He is particularly interested in exploring the histories of often ignored actors and the hidden ways in which they exert powerful influences on major historical turning points. He is also committed to widening participation at Universities, especially in the face of increasing government efforts to raise barriers to accessing education. Professor McDonnell is the author of two prize-winning books, Masters of Empire: Great Lakes Indians and the Making of America (2015) and The Politics of War: Race, Class, and Conflict in Revolutionary Virginia (2007) - which won the NSW Premier's History Prize. He also is an editor or co-editor of three other works on the Age of Revolution, including Facing Empire: Indigenous Experiences in a Revolutionary Age, with Kate Fullagar (2018), and Remembering the Revolution: Memory, History, and Nation-Making from the Revolution to the Civil War, with Frances Clarke, Clare Corbould, and W. Fitzhugh Brundage (2013). His work has also been featured in the Organization of American Historians' (OAH) Best American History Essays.
