The Development of Southern Cultures in the Chesapeake, 1680-1800
Tobacco and Slaves 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, Allan Kulikoff provides the most comprehensive study to date 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.
Allan Kulikoff is professor of history at Northern Illinois University and author of The Agrarian Origins of American Capitalism.
