Editor Anthony Dunbar and more than a dozen Southern writers, historians, business and labor-watchers, and philosophers reexamine some of the issues raised in the 2004 collection of essays, Where We Stand, Voices of Southern Dissent, which warned of the dangers of reelecting George W. Bush and of white Southerners unquestioningly casting their political lot with fundamentalism and conservatism. In this new collection, those essayists and new ones offer thoughtful, provocative suggestions for a fresh path America should follow in governance, international affairs, the environment, workplace security, freedom of the press, and immigration reform. They present "Southern Solutions," based upon southern experience, to a nation that has drifted far off course. Economist and former U.S. Secretary of Labor Ray Marshall anchors the book, and editor Dunbar writes the introduction. Jason Berry, Charles Bussey, Dan Carter, Danny Duncan Collum, Doug Davis, Leslie W. Dunbar, Glenn A. Feldman, Dan Pollitt, Susan Ford-Wiltshire, and Frye Gailiard are among the contributors.
