Appeared in Choice on 1987-04:
A narrowly focused study of state politics in Georgia from the end of the American Revolution to the death of James Jackson in 1806. Although politics were dominated by factions and strong personalities, parties began to emerge as numerous and often violent clashes occurred over such matters as the role of the tories, sectional interest, frontier lands, Indians, the constitution, and the policies of the Washington administration. Lamplugh devotes major attention to Yazoo land sales. Absence, however, of any treatment of social and economic matters as a basis of political behavior constitutes a serious void. Overall, the work is a clear, interesting, reasoned presentation of thorough research among a wide variety of primary and secondary sources. Excellent bibliographic essay and index. Recommended for undergraduate and graduate libraries.-K.R. Johnson, University of North Alabama
