Hard to imagine a stronger trio of Appalachian scholars than Pudup, Billings, and Waller! Pudup's field is community studies, Billings' is sociology, and Waller's is history! And the contributors: Mary K. Anglin, Alan Banks, Kathleen M. Blee, Wilma A. Dunaway, John R. Finger, John C. Inscoe, Robald L. Lewis, Ralph Mann, Gordon B. McKinney, Paul Salstrom, and John Alexander Williams plus the three co-editors. This is arguably the strongest set of regional scholars ever to appear within the pages of a single book.
Chapel Hill, North Carolina: The University of North Carolina Press, 1995. 391 pages with an index, Each essay has its own notes. Trade paperback.
