"The book is beautifully illustrated from archival documents and from the author’s large personal collection of sheet music covers and advertisements. . . . well researched and documented."--Cercles
"Dreaming of Dixie therefore updates, however implicitly, what was once labeled consensus history."--Southern Jewish History
"Well illustrated and topically expansive."--Journal of American History
"A fascinating book."--Against the Grain
"Cox’s engaging and wonderfully illustrated book serves as a much-needed challenge to historians to pursue further interdisciplinary study of the American South in popular culture and would also be of interest to scholars interested in consumerism, tourism, and the intersections between regionalism and national identity.”"-The Southern Register
