From Calabar to Carter's Grove: The History of a Virginia Slave Community. By Lorena S. Walsh. Charlottesville and London: University Press of Virginia, 2001. Pp. xxii, 335. $18.95, paper
Over the past quarter century, no scholar has done more to document the social history of the colonial Chesapeake than Lorena Walsh. In so doing, she has made important scholarly contributions in a variety of areas, most notably, in agricultural history, demographic history, African American history, and women s history. Along with such scholars as Lois Green Carr, Allan Kulikoff, Darrett and Anita Rutman, and Russell Menard among others in the so-called Chesapeake School, Walsh has helped to create a powerful framework for understanding the evolution of Virginia and Maryland and for interpreting the behavior of the populations residing therein. Two of the hallmarks of the work of scholars associated with the School are innovative methodologies and meticulous, painstaking research, both of which characteristics are readily apparent in the volume under review.
