"Honoring a deceased colleague can be a labor of love as well as scholarship. Unbought Grace: An Elizabeth Fox-Genovese Reader accomplishes this balance admirably through sixteen selected writings of Fox-Genovese and ten remembrances of her from an accomplished group of scholars. One result of this worthy project is to position Fox-Genovese for comparison with other scholars and commentators on women—from Southern historians Drew Faust and Florence King to theoretical historian Griselda Pollock to international analysts Juker Tati Imam Muhni, Miriam Cook, Ernestine Friedl, Louly Konz, Catherine Bateson, Claire Raymond, and Johnetta Cole. Through important works like this one, Fox-Genovese's viewpoints continue to enrich the study of women and related topics in the South and beyond. We should be deeply grateful to general editor David Moltke-Hansen and to the editors of this remarkable volume."—Dr. James Peacock, Kenan Professor of Anthropology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
