The latest installment in the New York Times bestselling Politically Incorrect Guide series expands on the hugely successful Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

Far from being the backwater of prejudice and ignorance that the liberal media would have you believe, the South has always been the center of American culture. From the founding fathers—Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and many others—to the frontiersmen who tamed the West, to the country music and NASCAR-loving, Bible-thumping heart of “red state” America, the South is the quintessence of what’s original, unique, and most-loved about American culture. And with its emphasis on traditional values, family, faith, military service, good manners, small government, and independent-minded people, the South should certainly rise again.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The book [is] a valuable primer—and an enjoyable, easy-to-read one at that—for friends who are curious to know why you hold an interpretation of American history that doesn’t exactly conform to what everyone was taught in fourth grade…The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South is an excellent and welcome defense of all that is good and valuable in the Southern tradition.”

    Thomas E. Woods, New York Times bestselling author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History

  • “Dixie is alive and well—still very much here and very much its old self. This will doubtless be bad news for the humorless and self-righteous South-haters, but The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South proves it. More important, the book is hell-raisin’ fun! I guarantee Southerners and other normal people will have a good ol’ time with this high-spirited read, a soul-lifting experience unmatched since Toscanini conducted ‘Dixie.’”

    Clyde Wilson, professor of history, University of South Carolina

  • “A lot of people want the South to disappear into that bland, strip-mall, nothingness that has stamped out the regional richness in other parts of the country. Once again Southerners rebel. With gentle wit and humor, the author tells you what Southerners cherish about their region and why they won’t give it up. Some people think the battle has already been lost, but true Southerners never pick their fights based on the odds of winning. They will never give up their culture, their history, and their rich heritage. As the author makes clear, the fight for the South is far from over.”

    Charley Reese, nationally syndicated columnist

  • “Anybody know how to reproduce a rebel yell on paper? Let me know if so. I want to let one loose on behalf of this stirring, entertaining, and, finally, deeply affirming book.”

    William Murchison, nationally syndicated columnist

    " Fun and interesting book. The author stretches a bit in the WW2 section, talking about Southerners and Honorary Southerners and even people who just admired Lee. But the sections about the CW were great and brought out some fascinating thoughts. "

    " This is just a fun coffee-table book. At moments it is funny and at others a little curious. Not really heavy reading, but it is not particularly in depth either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 8/8/2008

    " What a great read; informative, fun, and biased in the right direction. The chapters are all meaty and the side-bars are likewise informative and fun to read. Should be required reading for all Southeners and for Yankees who move South. "

    " A Southerner's view on life, the War, and other important things. Very good. "
