America's Third Coast
Although disasters of the past decade--from Hurricanes Lili, Katrina, Rita, Humberto, Gustav, Ike, and Isaac to the massive BP oil spill--have drawn international attention to the fragility, vulnerability, and consequence of the Louisiana Gulf Coast, the scholarly scrutiny given to this area has failed to reflect its significance. Series editors Carl A. Brasseaux and Donald W. Davis aim to fill this noticeable void with publications on Gulf Coast history, life, and culture. In particular, this series will highlight the economic activities and environmental stewardship of the inhabitants of this diverse region.
From eyewitness accounts of the coastal plain throughout history, to examinations of the region's industries, to books on the coast's historic hurricanes, material culture, and foodways, books in the series will explore the Gulf Coast in a format accessible to policy makers, residents of the coast, and the general public alike.
Written by leading scholars in the eld, this series offers readers important insights into a timely discussion on restoring and rehabilitating the coast with the coastal population, for the first time, at the forefront of the nation's consciousness.
