Colonial South Carolina: A History
In this modern and complete history of colonial South Carolina, Robert M. Weir explains the apparent paradoxes that defined a colony considered one of the most enigmatic in North America. In doing so, he offers provocative observations about its unparalled mid-eighteenth-century prosperity, escalating racial tension, political struggles, and push toward revolution.

Overall a very good and well-written history of South Carolina in colonial times, however, it could have been longer and in more depth. South Carolina, especially Charleston, was one of the most wealthy epicenters of business and politics in the American colonial period, after all, and there's a lot to say. Still, a fine book and perhaps the best general history of the state's colonial period.
