In order to systematize regional studies, the authors view the
southern United States as an integrated system of economic,
political, social, and educational institutions. The underlying
theme is that if one wants to understand the South, it is necessary
to examine the bonds among these various institutions. The new
methodology presented is a type of systems analysis in which
relevant forces affecting the South are identified.
