"The American South" takes a fresh look at major political, economic, social, and cultural developments from the founding of Jamestown in 1607, to modern times. Volume I begins with settlement of the English colonies and takes students through the end of the Civil War. Volume II moves from 1865 to the 1990s. The book offers: coverage of slavery - its origins, how it functioned as an institution, the world of slaves in the colonial era and the 19th century; and coverage of women - providing a sense of their lives and roles inside and outside of the family from the colonial era onwards.
