Simon and Schuster, 1997
paperback; 274 pages


Culture maverick Jim Goad presents a thoroughly reasoned, darkly funny, and rampagingly angry defense of America's most maligned social group - the cultural clan variously referred to as rednecks, hillbillies, white trash, crackers, and trailer trash. As this book brilliantly demonstrates, America's dirty little secret is not racism but classism. While pouncing incessantly on racial themes, most major media outlets are silent about America's widening class rifts - a problem that negatively affects more people of all colors than does racism. With an unmatched ability for rubbing salt in cultural wounds, Goad deftly dismantles most popular American notions about race and culture and takes a sledgehammer to our delicate glass-blown popular conceptions of government, religion, media, and history.
