(p.207) Conclusion
Reformers to Radicals


University Press of Kentucky

Despite efforts to integrate the Appalachian South into mainstream America being perceived as an “unfinished revolution” and how it caused various problems, this points out some of the fundamental lessons regarding the nature of change, change agents, liberal reform, and of those that opposed these changes and reforms. Also, looking at these events helps us to understand the War on Poverty. Since the first attempt at “reconstruction”, various government agencies and interest groups and the local elites dominated what was viewed to be beneficial change. The assumptions of both the AVs and the CSM revealed a cultural explanation of the inadequacies of the mountaineers in their efforts.

Keywords:   Appalachian South, mountaineers, AVs, CSM, reconstruction, liberal reform
