(p. ix) Acknowledgments

The editors of this volume would like to thank Oxford University Press for its support of this project. In particular, we wish to extend our gratitude to Brendan O’Neill. It was he who realized several years ago that an Oxford Handbook of the Literature of the U.S. South would be a valuable addition to the series and to American literary studies and asked us to coedit. Throughout the process, he has been a tireless advocate and advisor. We are grateful, as well, to the anonymous readers, whose comments and suggestions were especially helpful. In addition, we thank Stephen Bradley, assistant editor, who helped us negotiate a number of complex matters as we prepared the manuscript for publication. And we have benefitted immensely from the expertise of Eswari Maruthu, project manager at Newgen Knowledge Works, and Kristen Holt-Browning, who copyedited the volume. Fred Hobson thanks Tara Cowan, Eric Meckley, and Barbara Bennett for invaluable technical assistance.

Finally, we are grateful to our contributors who have given us twenty-seven superb chapters representing the very best work in the field at what we believe to be a watershed moment in southern literary and cultural studies. It has been an honor to work with them. (p. x)
