restricted access Southern Exposure: House Histories with Room for a View


This essay reviews five recent books about Southern universities that shed light both on the problem of writing official histories and on the evolution of higher education in this region. The author draws from the wealth of good new institutional histories to sketch a collective profile of the “Southern university,” its saga triumph over general apathy and hostility, and the “unfinished business” that remains in writing such histories.
