"These essays, largely the work of a promising group of younger scholars, establish an important groundwork for a new wave of significant scholarship on the colonial South Carolina lowcountry. Many offer useful and fresh evidence. Read collectively, they also provide a remarkably comprehensive account of the development of the region."—Thad W. Tate, Murden Professor of History Emeritus, College of William and Mary
"With these fifteen essays, the Lower South and its central colony, South Carolina, is at last receiving the scrupulous attention and imaginative investigation once afforded New England, the Chesapeake, and the Mid-Atltantic regions. This collection reveals a colonial society that was dynamic as well as exploitative, diverse as well as hedonistic—but above all, infinitely fascinating."—Philip Morgan, The Johns Hopkins University
"The editors of this volume are to be warmly congratulated on having assembled a quite dazzling array of essays that represent the very best of recent scholarship on the colonial South Carolina Lowcountry."—Betty Wood, University of Cambridge
