1778. Guess, William Francis. South Carolina:annals of pride and protest. Illustrations and maps by John O’Hara Cosgrave, II. New York, Harper [1960] 337 p. illus. (A Regions of America book) 58–12450 F269.G85. Bibliography: p. 325–329.

As in many of the volumes in the Regions of America series, this history of South Carolina is introduced by a personal prologue establishing the author’s relationship and approach to his subject and setting the style of the work. Directed toward the general reader, the book is a broad episodic review of the South Carolinian ethos from colonial times to the present, rich in biography, literary allusion, and regional pride and idiom. Selections he makes from contemporary diaries and letters provide insight into "the marvelously informing drama of acute and archetypal minds at grips with crucial experience." Guess leans heavily on Ulrich B. Phillips’ assertion that white supremacy was the "central theme" in Southern history. The effect of the Negro’s presence within the fabric of South Carolina’s social, political, and economic affairs is a constant ingredient in his discussion of the State’s development.
