That's the book! The title is a bit misleading because the book is really several Ayers essays on Southern history. He gives the reader an appreciation of being a young student from East Tennessee at Yale University, a stranger in a strange land. He and his wife invited two other young couples to their apartment for dinner, one of the other couples being from Israel. During the evening the third couple, a pair from Ohio, asked the Israelis if they could understand English as spoken by Ayers and his wife. Yes, they replied, it was no problem. The Israelis explained that before coming to the U.S. they had been watching "Hee-Haw" for some time, so the Tennesseans were easy to understand.
He has an interesting way of stating a point that make things clear. For instance, Ayers makes mention of how the United States has applied the lessons of Reconstruction to foreign policy. Our government has been attempting to apply the failed policies of that period ever since, most recently in Iraq. Never thought about it that way. Once you consider exactly why the U.S. experienced such problems in post-war Iraq, Ayers has it right. His parallels of the postwar South and postwar Iraq are dead on.
It's well worth your time.
