520    Schooling the New South is a vivid account of the 
       relationship between education and society during a time 
       of sweeping social change. James Leloudis recreates North 
       Carolina's classrooms as they existed at the turn of the 
       century and explores the wide-ranging social and 
       psychological implications of the transition from old-
       fashioned common schools to modern graded schools. He 
       argues that this critical change in methods of instruction
       both reflected and guided the transformation of the 
       American South. According to Leloudis, architects of the 
       New South embraced the public school as an institution 
       capable of remodeling their world according to the 
       principles of free labor and market exchange. By altering 
       habits of learning, they hoped to instill in students a 
       vision of life that valued individual ambition and 
       enterprise above the familiar relations of family, church,
       and community. Their efforts eventually created both a 
       social and a pedagogical revolution, says Leloudis. Public
       schools became what they are today - the primary 
       institution responsible for the socialization of children 
       and therefore the principal battleground for society's 
       conflicts over race, class, and gender. The book gives 
       voice to the principal actors in this transformation - 
       school administrators, teachers, reformers, parents, and 
       students - whose characters and personal experiences shine
       through Leloudis's narrative. Based on the letters and 
       reminiscences of parents, teachers, and students; on 
       novels; and on more traditional documentary sources, 
       Schooling the New South deftly combines social and 
       political history, gender studies, and African American 
       history into a story of educational reform.
