    [ Deep South: Four Seasons on Back Roads] Ebook Télécharger A well written but essentially dishonest book, the dishonesty being the result of an imbalance. It’s clear Theroux had a vision of the south and southerners, whites in particular, before he made his excursions. In the course of his wandering he appears to have purposely went looking for (or only reports?) those encounters that support his prejudices The vast majority of people he spends time with are either

I am a black southerner and found the book deeply offensive. Although he puts denigrating comments in quotes, it is hard to imagine any southerner saying some words to a total stranger especially an outsider. Consider for example, that rac

    blueboxaccountants.co.uk â 5 Summary Read & Download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free â blueboxaccountants.co.uk Summary Deep South: Four Seasons on Back Roads As a native Southerner in my 60's I found this book to be sympathetic and insightful. Mr. Thoreaux did not disparage the rural lower class residents of the South, but sought to understand their frustration with the changes wrought in their life. Factories were moved to Mexico or other countries. Longtime jobs were lost and there were no alternatives. Wealthy people and politicians sent millions of dollars in a

    [ Deep South: Four Seasons on Back Roads] Ebook Télécharger This is a very recent look at life in the southern States and how things have changed (or not) since segregation was supposedly ended. Given that it's so recent, it's a shock to read that extreme poverty still exists in the wealthy US that exceeds even that in Africa, where Theroux has travelled extensively (and Theroux himself is shocked by this discovery), while segregation still exists, either overtly or c

A few years ago I had visited the deep south but like most tourist went to Charleston, Savanah, New Orleans , Memphis, Nashville and enjoyed all I saw trememdously. Little did I know that there is such a dark side to The

    blueboxaccountants.co.uk â 5 Summary [ Deep South: Four Seasons on Back Roads] Ebook Télécharger Having read and enjoyed several of Paul's travel books this one was frankly disappointing. I think he set off with
    some sort of agenda. And his attack on some of the great Southern writers was unjustified had no feel for the book at all.
    Gave up before the end something I hardly ever do.
