This collection of fifty-nine primary documents presents multiple viewpoints on more than four centuries of growth, conflict, and change in Georgia. The selections range from a captive's account of a 1597 Indian revolt against Spanish missionaries on the Georgia coast to an impassioned debate in 1992 between county commissioners and environmental activists over a proposed hazardous waste facility in Taylor County. Drawn from such sources as government records, newspapers, oral histories, personal diaries, and letters, the documents give a voice to the concerns and experiences of men and women representing the diverse races, ethnic groups, and classes that, over time, have contributed to the state's history.

Cornerstones of Georgia History is especially suited for classroom use, but it provides any concerned citizen of the state with a historical basis on which to form relevant and independent opinions about Georgia's present-day challenges.

Thomas A. Scott is a professor of history at Kennesaw State College. His honors include Kennesaw State College's 1994 distinguished teaching award and 1991 faculty service award.

Editorial Reviews

Scott has assembled an excellent collection of primary source documents to be used as a text supplement in undergraduate Georgia history courses. Cornerstones of Georgia History fills a definite need in Georgia history; I have been looking for a book like this to use in my own teaching.
