Before 1650, only a few hundred Scots had trickled into the American colonies, but by the early 1770s the number had risen to 10,000 per year. A conservative estimate of the total number of Scots who settled in North America prior to 1785 is around 150,000. Who were these Scots? What did they do? Where did they settle? What factors motivated their emigration? Dobson's work, based on original research on both sides of the Atlantic, comprehensively identifies the Scottish contribution to the settlement of North America prior to 1785, with particular emphasis on the seventeenth century.

The story of the enslaved West Indian women in the struggle for freedom Enslaved West Indian women had few opportunities to record their stories for posterity. Yet from their dusty footprints and the umpteen small clues they left for us to unravel, there's no question that they earned their place in history. Pick any Caribbean island and you'll find race, skin colour and rank interacting with gender in a unique and often volatile way. In A Kick in the Belly, Stella Dadzie follows the evidence, and finds women played a distinctly female role in the development of a culture of slave resistance--a role that was not just central, but downright dynamic. From the coffle-line to the Great House, enslaved women found ways of fighting back that beggar belief. Whether responding to the horrendous conditions of plantation life, the sadistic vagaries of their captors or the "peculiar burdens of their sex," their collective sanity relied on a highly subversive adaptation of the values and cultures they smuggled with them naked from different parts of Africa. By sustaining or adapting remembered cultural practices, they ensured that the lives of chattel slaves retained both meaning and purpose. A Kick in the Belly makes clear that their subtle acts of insubordination and their conscious acts of rebellion came to undermine the very fabric and survival of West Indian slavery.

Loyalism In Revolutionary Virginia

"This study analyzes loyalism in a local setting, specifically in Virginia in the Eastern shore counties of Accomack and Northhampton, and at Norfolk Borough and its surrounding counties of Norfolk, Princess Anne, Isle of Wight, and Nansemond ... Local analysis of loyalism provides a new perspective on the importance of ideology in the American Revolution. Nonideological factors operated both in the behavior of loyalists and in the response of the patriots. Much activity which was labeled loyalist was based on self-serving, expedient motives ... Concerns for community stability and interpersonal harmony were often more important in determining the treatment of loyalists than was the nature of loyalist behavior or ideology"--Introduction.
