Development Arrested : The Blues and Plantation Power in the Mississippi Delta
by Clyde Woods and Ruth Wilson Gilmore




Overview -
A new edition of a classic history of the Mississippi River Delta

Development Arrested is a major reinterpretation of the 200-year-old conflict between African American workers and the planters of the Mississippi Delta. The book measures the impact of the plantation system on those who suffered its depredations firsthand, while tracing the decline and resurrection of plantation ideology in national public policy debate. Despite countless defeats under the planter regime, African Americans in the Delta continued to push forward their agenda for social and economic justice.

Throughout this remarkably interdisciplinary book, ranging across fields as diverse as rural studies, musicology, development studies, and anthropology, Woods demonstrates the role of music--including jazz, rock and roll, soul, rap and, above all, the blues--in sustaining a radical vision of social change.
