Rupert Vance is known as one of the principal developers of the intellectual apparatus of regional sociology, and he observed and commented for some fifty years on the problems and progress of his native region. In these wide-ranging articles, Vance masterfully combines data drawn from historical, demographic, geographical, and statistical sources with anecdotes, personal recollections, and a journalist's ability to extract the telling image from a welter of complex circumstances.
