Haunted by God
In pen on flyleaf: "Donated by Catherine Haas Riley, daughter of Maude Dabbs Haas.";Dabbs' thesis is that Southern society, attitudes and institutions are inextricably rooted in and conditioned by the all-permeating presence of Christianity. He demonstrates this influence by examining first the institutions which have given the South its enduring form: the family, slavery, and especially plantation-culture; then, through an examination of Southern spiritual values he analyzes their application at the cultural level, and the mutual impact of church and society.
