Product Description:
The most inclusive history of North Carolina to date. In the last three decades, North Carolina has witnessed a remarkable growth in population, economic development, and political importance, and it now ranks as the tenth most populous state in the Union. The Tar Heel State: A History of North Carolina constitutes the most comprehensive and inclusive single-volume chronicle of the state's storied past to date, culminating with an attentive look at recent events that have transformed North Carolina into a southern mega state. The first such volume in more than two decades, Milton Ready's work offers a distinctive view of the state's history that integrates tales of famous pioneers, statesmen, soldiers, farmers, captains of industry, and community leaders with more marginalized voices, including those of Native Americans, African Americans, and women. Ready gives readers a view of North Carolina that encompasses perspectives from the coast, tobacco road, the Piedmont, and the mountains. the early history of Cherokees, the rise of industrial mills, and the changes wrought by modern information-based technologies since 1970. Mixing spirited anecdotes and illustrative statistics, Ready describes the rich Native American culture found by John White in 1585, the chartered chaos of North Carolina's proprietary settlement, and the chronic distrust of government that grew out of settlement patterns and the colony's early political economy. He challenges the perception of relaxed intellectualism attributed to the Rip van Winkle state, the notion that slavery was a benign institution in North Carolina, and the commonly accepted interpretation of Reconstruction in the state. Ready also discusses how the suffrage movement pushed North Carolina into a hesitant twentieth-century progressivism. In perhaps his most significant contribution to North Carolina's historical record, Ready continues his narrative past the benchmark of World War II and into the twenty-first century. and parks, Ready recounts the events that have fueled North Carolina's accelerated development in recent years and the many challenges that have accompanied such rapid growth.

Product Description:

In this long-awaited survey history, William Link examines the fascinating history of North Carolina through the lens of strong but seemingly contradictory historical patterns: powerful forces of traditionalism punctuated by hierarchies of class, race relations, and gender that seemingly clashed, especially during the last century, with potent forces of modernization and a “progressive” element that welcomed, even embraced, change. The result answers meaningful questions that all Tar Heels ask about the history and the future of the unique and quickly growing state they call home.

Taking the North Carolina story from moments before first contact all the way to the elections of 2008, this book provides a great new resource for all college-level instructors and students of North Carolina history.

Product Description:
What may truly be termed the first real history of North Carolina is that toy John Lawson, and it is in many respects the most interesting of them all. Lawson was a man of very marked ability. He was the surveyor general of theL ords Proprietors for their province of North Carolina. He must have ibeen accomplished in his profession and it is plain to see from the book he has left that he was also a botanist and naturalist of no mean order, even though he was at times led far astray by the stories the Indians told him. He was a very close observer of people, and in a small compass he has fixed for all time information not otherwise to be had regarding the aboriginal inhabitants of North Carolina. He signs himself John Lawson, Gentleman, from which it is probable that he was a scion of the ancient house of Lawson in Yorkshire, England, of which John is the favorite name. This history, which bears the date of 1714, has a preface, a dedication and an introduction, the dedication being in all respects a model, a double tribute to this new land of Carolina and to theL ords Proprietors, its owners. Lawson, after securing the notes and other material for this history, appears to have begun its publication in parts in London as early as 1708 and some copies are dated 1710. The particular copy from which this reprint is now made was presented to theS tate of North Carolina in 1831 by President James Madison. A second edition of Lawson was printed in London in 1718 and differs in some respects from the one now reprinted. It is not 60 attractive, the map being Very small and poor. The title page says it wasP rinted for T. Warner at theB lack Boy in Pater Noster Row, 1718. Price bound 5shillings. A reprint of Lawson was made in 1860 by Oliver H. Perry, State librarian, but is very unattractive in all respects. Even this reprint is rare and costly. Perry stated in 1860, i
