1960 to Century's End
Louisiana Purchase Bicentennial Series in Louisiana History, Volume IX
edited by Michael L. Kurtz
Louisiana Since the Longs fills an important place for readers of Louisiana history. This eclectic collection includes selections from books, theses, reference books, and academic and popular articles, many written by Louisianians. Divided into six parts—Politics, The Economy, The Environment, Race, Education, and Some Reflections on Late Twentieth Century Louisiana—this volume deals with serious issues and explores such subjects as David Duke, illiteracy, and racial friction, as well lighter topics such as cajun music, Walker Percy, Louis Armstrong, female writers, and museums.
