The Haymarket Series. London and New York: Verso, 1998.

A new edition of a classic history of the Mississippi River DeltaDevelopment Arrested is a major reinterpretation of the 200-year-old conflict between African American workers and the planters of the Mississippi Delta. The book measures the impact of the plantation system on those who suffered its depredations firsthand, while tracing the decline and resurrection of plantation ideology in national public policy debate. Despite countless defeats under the planter regime, African Americans in the Delta continued to push forward their agenda for social and economic justice. Throughout this remarkably interdisciplinary book, ranging across fields as diverse as rural studies, musicology, development studies, and anthropology, Woods demonstrates the role of music—including jazz, rock and roll, soul, rap and, above all, the blues—in sustaining a radical vision of social change.
User reviews
Anasius
This book gave me insights into the depth and breath of systemic inequalities and how they are constructed through policies. That's not the entire focus of the writing, but it underlies the entire narrative. I highly recommend to anyone interested in race, place, history, inequality, and other social issues.
