What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"We badly need a scholarly history of North Carolina. WilliamLink's volume is sound in conception, research, and analysis. It isespecially penetrating on the related subjects of slavery and race,but also deals well with politics and social history morebroadly."
–Harry Watson, UNC-Chapel Hill

"Bill Link has written a valuable contribution for college-levelclasses in North Carolina history. His well-written text isbalanced in terms of chronolgoy and topic selection. NorthCarolina: Change and Tradition in a Southern State is a significantand welcome addition to current North Carolina historytexts."
–L. Scott Philyaw, Western Carolina University
