For a state as dynamic as Georgia, it's a bit surprising to discover so few good histories of it. While there are newer books, this one is, by far, the most comprehensive and effective.

Written by four contributors who are experts in their respective chronological periods, this book is a good, balanced attempt at 250 years of history from pre-1733 to about 1980. The editor manages to maintain the balance of the text by preventing it from becoming focussed on two or three critical events, such as the American Revolution, the Civil War, or the Civil Rights movement.

The chapters dedicated to colonial and ante-bellum Georgia are nicely fleshed out, while the chapters dedicated to post-WW2 are concerned mostly with local politics and feel forced. This is a common problem with historical writing in general, and is not an essential flaw of the book.

While this book is not a page-turning narrative intended to keep your attention like a novel would, it is the best single-volume reference work for the state. If you have interest in the subject, you'll find the textbook style tolerable.

I had to purchase this book for class and it was quite confusing. The book is very poorly organized and the chronological order of events makes no sense. For example the book goes back and forth without warning with information presented, such stating a death of a person and then discuss the person again on the next page or chapter. There is a lot of information provided in the book, you'll just need to make your own timeline to keep track of things. I will keeping the book, hope the newer editions are edited better than this.

A good broad survey of Georgia history. However, it's quite out-of-date; it stops short of the last 35 years of the state's history. What little bit of the post Vietnam era is included are just tiny nuggets that foreshadow an geologic shift in the state's political economy, ruling politcal forces, and great social changes that have taken place since then.
