University of Mississippi publishes "The Confederate & Neo-Confederate Reader" edited by James Loewen and Edward H. Sebesta, Updated

I am pleased to say that the University Press of Mississippi has published "The Confederate & Neo-Confederate Reader: The 'Great Truth' About the 'Lost Cause' edited by James Loewen and Edward H. Sebesta.

The University Press of Mississippi link is: http://www.upress.state.ms.us/books/1338

It is at Amazon.com at this link:


and at Barnes & Nobles at this link:


There is a website for the book http://www.confederatepastpresent.org/ in which we have additional material not found in the book. We didn't want the book to be 600 pages, and so the extra material is online at this website. AT THIS time there is only one item at the website, but during the summer I will be adding material in time for the forthcoming school year.

We would also like to thank some of the people who helped us. The following our thanks quoted from the book itself.

"The editors would like to thank the following readers for comments and suggestions that were of extraordinary value: John Coski, John Dittmer, James O. Horton, Dwight Pitcaithley, Gregory Urwin, David Williams, and an anonymous reviewer."

John Coski is at the Museum of the Confederacy but was a great help on sources for the book.

The target audience, besides historians and persons who like reading about history, is school teachers, college history classes, and other educational and institutional venues.
