The first six chapters of this essay collection focus on the formative decades of South Carolinas history, from 1670 through the 1730s. Contributors Meaghan N. Duff, Bertrand Van Ruymbeke, and Gary L. Hewitt explore the colonys early settlement. R. C. Nash, Stephen G. Hardy, and Eirlys M. Barker investigate the rapidly expanding economy. Turning to the colonys reliance on slave labor, William L. Ramsay analyzes the institution and abandonment of Indian slavery- Jennifer Lyle Morgan examines the reproductive capabilities of slave women- and S.

Max Edelson looks at the distinctive social position of skilled slaves. Robert Olwell considers how South Carolina public officials adapted the office of justice of the peace to the needs of a slave society, while Matthew Mulcahy shows how calamities of fires and hurricanes exacerbated the problem of slave control. Finally, Edward Pearson describes the ways in which South Carolinas emerging elite asserted their new status- G. Winston Lane and Elizabeth M. Pruden review the surprising economic independence of women- and Thomas Little examines the colonys religious life and spread of evangelicalism.
