This successor to the classic Lefler-Newsome North Carolina: The
History of a Southern State
, published in 1954, presents a
fresh survey history that includes the contemporary scene. Drawing
upon recent scholarship, the advice of specialists, and his own
knowledge, Powell has created a splendid narrative that makes North
Carolina history accessible to both students and general readers.
For years to come, this will be the standard college text and an
essential reference for home and office.
