"The first edition of this book was published in 1933. It is well-written and provides valuable insight into the unique social-experimental founding of Georgia and its subsequent growth throughout the mid-20th century. I consider it a valuable resource for anyone interested in Georgia genealogy research, and I have obtained a copy for my library via Amazon's used books website. I have done brief research on Professor Coulter (1890-1981) and found that there is controversy concerning his stance for segregation and his opposition to civil rights reform in the 1960s. I certainly don't agree with those past views of his. However, as a white man myself raised in the South during that period; I do recognize that that was the prevailing view for a white man in his 70s living in the 1960s. Maybe I'm naive, but I am inclined to believe that Mr. Coulter would recant those previous racist views if he were alive today. Nevertheless, I do consider this book to have value as far as understanding Georgia History is concerned."
