Tobacco and slaves: the development of southern cultures in the Chesapeake, 1680-1800, Volume 2
Published for the Institute of Early American History and Culture, Williamsburg, Virginia by the University of North Carolina Press, 1986 - History - 449 pages
This book is a major reinterpretation of the economic and political transformation of Chesapeake society from 1680 to 1800. Building upon massive archival research in Maryland and Virginia, the author provides a comprehensive study of changing social relations--among both blacks and whites--in the eighteenth-century South. He links his arguments about class, gender, and race to the later social history of the South and to larger patterns of American development.
