Sugar and Slaves: The Rise of the Planter Class in the English West Indies, 1624-1713
Institute of Early American History and Culture at Williamsburg, Va., 1972 - History - 359 pages
An annotated listing of everything published by the University of North Carolina Press since its founding in 1922, this new edition of Books from Chapel Hill will be a valuable reference tool for scholars, bibliographers, librarians, book dealers, and bibliophiles. Two previous editions of Books from Chapel Hill have been published, the first on the occasion of the Press's twenty-fifth anniversary and the second, on its fiftieth. Like its predecessors, this edition includes, in a comprehensive list arranged by author, brief descriptions and complete bibliographic information for the more than 3,000 books that have been published by the Press. The book also includes a full title listing, an expanded subject listing, a list of series, and a list of major awards received since 1969. The volume opens with essays by former directors William T. Couch, Lambert Davis, and Matthew Hodgson, that, taken together, present a brief history of the Press. A publisher's booklist tells its history. Here, readers will find evidence of the Press's early commitment to publishing on race relations, its contributions to regional publishing, its continuing strengths as a publisher of some of the best books on southern and early American history, and its more recent interest in gender studies and cultural history. More than just a catalog, this book documents the tradition and achievements of the University of North Carolina Press.
