The rebuke of history : the Southern Agrarians and American conservative thought /

A study of the Agrarian tradition from the 1920s to the present day. Paul Murphy shows how what began as a radical conservative movement eventually became, alternately, a critique of 20th-century American liberalism, a defence of the Western tradition, and a form of Southern traditionalism.
