An astute and stimulating account of the people and forces that shaped the development of Georgia and, by implication, other areas of the South, The Creation of Modern Georgia is a provocative reinterpretation of the transition from the Old South to the New. Rejecting previous analyses, Bartley describes the persistence and ultimate collapse of a plantation-oriented colonial society and the emergence of a modern Georgia. In the second edition, Bartley has enlarged and updated the book with two new chapters to place greater emphasis on the expanded urbanization, industrialization, and diversification of Georgia.
NUMAN V. BARTLEY was E. Merton Coulter Professor of History at the University of Georgia. He published several books on the South.

Editorial Reviews

Bartley, an old hand at Georgia and southern history, has written what could well become a model for other states; his Creation of Modern Georgia is a scholarly, well-thought out, compactly written survey of the state. . . . Moreover, the author has succeeded in his task of fashioning 'an interpretive essay' that explores the evolution of various social groups and 'how their interrelationships have been expressed in politics' - American Historical Review
