The Creation of Modern Georgia

Front Cover
University of Georgia Press, 1990 - History - 279 pages
An astute and stimulating account of the people and forces that shaped the development of Georgia and, by implication, other areas of the South, The Creation of Modern Georgia is a provocative reinterpretation of the transition from the Old South to the New. Rejecting previous analyses, Bartley describes the persistence and ultimate collapse of a plantation-oriented colonial society and the emergence of a modern Georgia. In the second edition, Bartley has enlarged and updated the book with two new chapters to place greater emphasis on the expanded urbanization, industrialization, and diversification of Georgia.
