John Fletcher Hanson was a rare combination of industrialist, journalist, and orator who spent most of his life in Macon, Georgia, rising from the ashes of the Civil War to become the leading voice of the New South. Many have assigned that role to Henry Grady, but while Grady was talking about a New South, Hanson was building one, by creating jobs, promoting Southern industrialization, and advancing educational opportunities. Georgia’s post–Civil War history cannot be fully understood without examining the life of J. F. Hanson, its most important New South advocate and industrialist. In bringing this remarkable man and his accomplishments to light for the first time, CRACKING THE SOLID SOUTH paints an absorbing picture of the economic, political, and social struggles that confronted Georgia after the Civil War and of the many ways one man shaped the course of the state’s history.

Price: $35.00
Daughters of Jefferson, Daughters of Bootblacks is a constructive proposal in feminist ethics from a theological perspective. With empathy, Barbara Andolsen reveals the moral vulnerability of the woman’s movement from its early manifestations in suffrage campaigns to the contemporary feminist theologies of Mary Daly, Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza, and Rosemary Ruether. Professor Andolsen suggests ways that the shape of the women’s movement might be transformed if greater attention were offered to distinctive black feminist perspectives on such issues as rape, work, male/female solidarity, and beauty. She concludes that feminist theology must stress the integral interrelationship of sexism, racism, and economic exploitation.

Local church history is important. What great thinkers have written and what denominational bodies have declared in resolutions and organizational ministries are important, but "lived religion" at the ground level provides a fuller picture of the story of the Christian faith. The fifty-year (1967-2017) story of Northminster Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi, is one of those narratives that richly adds to our understanding of how faith has been lived in a particular setting.

Dribbling for Dawah: Sports among Muslim Americans
By author: Steven Fink
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P536
ISBN: 9780881465921
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
Amidst a proliferation of scholarly literature about Islam in the United States, very little attention has been given to sports among Muslim Americans. While books about professional Muslim athletes can be found, this is the first book to investigate Muslim American sports at the local level, looking at Muslim basketball leagues, sports programs at mosques and Islamic schools, and sports events hosted by Muslim organizations. Drawing upon personal interviews and observations as well as scholarly sources, this book demonstrates that participation in sports activities plays a vital role in strengthening Islamic piety and fellowship, and in connecting Muslims with non-Muslims in post-9/11 America.

From evening school in 1913 to university status in 1969, Georgia State, an unwanted urban college, went through many difficult times. The problems included misguided recommendations from an elitist General Education Board, inadequate state funding, the Depression, opposition of the University of Georgia, a hostile board of regents, and the segregation crisis, among others. This sympathetic but critical account of GSU challenges some of the traditional interpretations of Georgia’s educational history.
