Suggestions for Further Reading

All the books contained in the bibliography served to advance the project, but several provided a great amount of help to this project and would make worthwhile reading for a more in depth study of the South and Media. Media Made Dixie is an excellent summation of media portrayals of the South, while Cash's Mind of the South is cited in nearly every work pertaining to Southern studies. Marsha McGees article provides an excellent analysis of the Southern sitcom on television. The article by Newcomb and the books by Ward and and Klapp also offer interesting perspectives on perception of heroes in society.
