9780813134260: Cultivating Race: The Expansion of Slavery in Georgia, 1750-1860 (New Directions In Southern History)

From the eighteenth century to the eve of the Civil War, Georgia's racial order shifted from the somewhat fluid conception of race prevalent in the colonial era to the harsher understanding of racial difference prevalent in the antebellum era. In Cultivating Race: The Expansion of Slavery in Georgia, 1750–1860, Watson W. Jennison explores the centrality of race in the development of Georgia, arguing that long-term structural and demographic changes account for this transformation. Jennison traces the rise of rice cultivation and the plantation complex in low country Georgia in the mid-eighteenth century and charts the spread of slavery into the up country in the decades that followed. Cultivating Race examines the "cultivation" of race on two levels: race as a concept and reality that was created, and race as a distinct social order that emerged because of the specifics of crop cultivation. Using a variety of primary documents including newspapers, diaries, correspondence, and plantation records, Jennison offers an in-depth examination of the evolution of racism and racial ideology in the lower South.

Review:

"Makes a genuine contribution to our understanding of antebellum Georgia."―Timothy J. Lockley, author of Maroon Communities in South Carolina: A Documentary Record

"Colonial Georgia has long been known as 'the debatable land' contested by the British and Spanish crowns. That imperial conflict, as Watson Jennison shows, was the tip of the iceberg. In a sweeping account, Jennison describes the struggle between Low Country planters, Revolutionary republicans, black maroons, free people of color, and Native Americans to control the region. Georgia's violent and tumultuous first century culminated in the creation of a white man's republic. Readers of this excellent book will know that the outcome was neither uncontested nor inevitable."―Claudio Saunt, author of Black, White, and Indian: Race and the Unmaking of an American Family

"Jennison's thoughtful synthesis of social, intellectual, and political history will stand for some time to come as the best one-volume account we have of slavery and racism in Georgia. This is a book that students and scholars of slavery, the South, and race in American history need to read and contend with."―Anthony E. Kaye, author of Joining Places: Slave Neighborhoods in the Old South

"Finesses Georgia's racial history to show that divides were not inevitable and that the call for the democratazation of white society helped create a bifurcated society by the antebellum era. . . . Jennison improves our understanding of how these divides came to be."―Choice

"This book provides interesting insight into the history of Georgia and demands a place on any early Americna reading list."―Southern Historian

"This book is a welcomed addition to the literature on race and slavery in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries."―Journal of American History

"This readable and engaging history provides a fresh perspective on familiar chronologies. That the work at times seems to be counterintuitive or counterfactual is a testament to the ways in which Jennison challenges assumptions about the meanings of race and the histories we tell ourselves."―American Historian Review

""Cultivating Race" is highly readable and recommended for graduate courses on colonial and antebellum U.S. history."―Kellie Carter Jackson, The Journal of African American History

Descripción The University Press of Kentucky, United States, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.By the 1850s, Georgia had established itself as one of the largest cotton-producing states in the South. During the previous century, the state had transformed from a multi-racial society of individuals from European, African, and Native American descent into a slavery-based society where white became synonymous with free and black with enslaved. Tens of thousands of men and women experienced the hardships and tragedies of the slave trade. Relegated to the harshest and most exhausting types of labor and subject to their owners reliance upon violent corporal punishment, slaves suffered the physical, cultural, economic, and political ramifications of the rise of the cotton kingdom. Scholars have written a number of excellent studies of slavery in Georgia, but these works focus almost exclusively on the lowcountry. Although our understanding of the slave societies that emerged in these various regions have been enhanced by these studies, their geographical focus obscure important changes that occurred in Georgia over the course of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Watson Jennison s Cultivating Race: The Expansion of Slavery in Georgia, 1750-1860 examines slavery in both the lowcountry and the upcountry, revealing both similarities and underlying tensions between the regions, determining race as the central factor in the ordering of the new American society. This book provides a more unified and comprehensive look at the vast demographic and economic changes that occurred in Georgia during this era. Employing personal papers, such as diaries, correspondence, and plantation records, Cultivating Race offers a social, cultural, and political history of the racial system in Georgia and uncovers the struggles of daily life as different groups contested for power. This manuscript is being considered for UPK s New Directions in Southern History series. Watson W. Jennison is an assistant professor of African American history at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. His articles and reviews have appeared in the Journal of Southern History and North Carolina Historical Review. Nº de ref. de la librería APC9780813134260
