Abstract:

Designed as a textbook for use in North Carolina history classes, this is a useful one-volume history of the state. But there are flaws.

The emphasis is on the positive, e.g., lynching is dismissed as "an unfortunate blot on the record of North Carolina." Though nothing new is added to the interpretation of the state's history, this book will no doubt become the standard s
