Abstract

Conkin certainly has done his part to keep American agriculture in the spotlight. A Revolution Down on the Farm appeals to a broad scholastic and public audience, and it should find a wide readership for many years to come. Conkin's seminal work would be equally suitable for a student in an American history course as it would be for a career agricultural specialist with the USDA, or for that matter anyone with an interest in rural Americana. For these reasons, as well as for the fact that it is concise, well-written, and often entertaining, I highly recommend A Revolution Down on the Farm. Sitting in Darkness: New South Fiction, Education, and the Rise of Jim Crow Colonialism, 1865­1920 Peter Schmidt. 2008. University Press of Mississippi, Jackson, MS. ii and 259 pp. Notes, selected bibliography, index. $50.00 hardcover (ISBN-13: 978-1934110393). jared powell The University of Arizona Debates rage among American politicians, educational scholars and other concerned groups over the causes of the so-called ``achievement gap'' between students of color and white students, and about whether private philanthropy should be permitted to fund schools in exchange for control over all or part of their curriculum.
