Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There have been many histories of our state, but I've never seen one that seems quite as thorough, concise, and fair-minded as The Palmetto State. . . . The authors cover it all: politics; the role of religion; popular culture, including jazz and the shag; the growth of our educational system; and the factors behind the dynamic economic development from agriculture to industry and tourism."--Hilton Head (S.C.) Island Packet

"The authors have written a book that will be of special interest to both the native-born and the recently arrived. It is carefully researched, frequently anecdotal, and an easy read."--Choice

"A volume such as The Palmetto State is long overdue. It is a lively read, full of interesting facts."--Charleston (S.C.) Post & Courier

"Bold, diverse, succinct, informative, and relevant are fitting adjectives to describe the strengths of this significant book. . . . Bass and Poole's most significant contribution is demonstrating how the state's past shapes both its present and future."--South Carolina Historical Magazine
