The evil empire within: Southern nationalism and the Washington problem

Abstract [en]

Human geographer David R. Jansson takes for his task the examination of contemporary attitudes of southern nationalists towards the central government, both from a critique of American “empire” by groups such as the neo-Confederate League of the South and the role that Latin American, particularly Mexican, immigration has played in antagonizing southern nationalists. The presence of dark-skinned people who speak Spanish in the local cultural landscape is interpreted, Jansson tells us, as a betrayal by the federal government of the South's largely homogenous and culturally cohesive communities. This fascinating chapter is based on interviews with League of the South members and leaders as well as email correspondence and materials from the League and other southern nationalist groups such as the Southern National Congress.
