    inclusion seems arbitraryBy Charles van Buren on January 7 2018Format Kindle EditionAfter extensively studying the sample and the list of authors covered I am not willing to spend 45 on this book Authors included and excluded seems to be very arbitrary Why John S Mosby and Albert Pike but not other Southern veterans who wrote extensively after the war? Why newspaper columnists Molly Ivans and Florence King well actually I understand the inclusion of King no matter who else got left out but not Paul Greenberg and Charlie Reese? Some of the authors covered may have been born in the South but are not really Southern writers having been educated elsewhere lived elsewhere for most of their lives and in general had very little to do with the South
