Georgia has a very conflicted history, one in which there are seldom simple and clear answers to questions we might have looking back from the 21st century. These books offer insight into the complex issues that have always surrounded the state and her people. The six-volume Documentary History of Georgia series provides a comprehensive historical view of the state, from the founding of the colony to the political aspirations of Jimmy Carter.
