Ever since its publication in 1941, The Mind of the South has been recognized as a path-breaking work of scholarship and as a literary achievement of enormous eloquence and insight in its own right. From its investigation of the Southern class system to its pioneering assessments of the region's legacies of racism, religiosity, and romanticism, W. J. Cash's book defined the way in which millions of readers -- on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line -- would see the South for decades to come. This fiftieth-anniversary edition of The Mind of the South includes an incisive analysis of Cash himself and of his crucial place in the history of modern Southern letters.

Wilbur Joseph Cash was born in South Carolina in 1900. He spent many years as a journalist and then associate editor at The Charlotte News. His writing was so eerily predictive that Cash earned the nickname Zarathustra. He died in Mexico in 1941 under mysterious circumstances, likely the target of Nazi spies. His work enjoyed great popularity during the Civil Rights Movement and it remains to this day required reading for anyone who is serious about learning the social history of the South.
