Plantation Life in the English Sugar Islands and Southern Mainland Colonies, 1607-1775

To continue a study of the comparison of plantation life in British sugar islands and in the southern mainland colonies, from the beginnings of settlement in 1607, and an examination of their rapid social divergence by 1775. This study utilizes a wide range of social research, i.e. plantation records, census returns, inventories and recent scholarship. An exploration of the social structure of the colonial south, in particular, the American slave system, has a timely bearing on the American Revolutionary era.
