Tate, Thad W., and David L. Ammerman, eds. The Chesapeake in the Seventeenth Century Essays on Anglo-American Society & Politics. Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1979.
Annotation / Notes: A collection of papers presented at a scholarly conference in 1974 covering all aspects of Chesapeake life and politics in the 17th century. Many of these scholars - especially Lois Green Carr, Lorena S. Walsh, Darrett and Anita Rutman, David W. Jordan, and Russell R. Menard - would become the core of a new "Chesapeake School," whose hallmark was to breathe life and insight into mute statistical records. Their influence into our understanding of this period cannot be overstated.
Brugger, Robert J. Maryland: A Middle Temperament, 1634-1980. Baltimore, MD: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1988.
Annotation / Notes: Brugger's comprehensive social and cultural history of Maryland is the fruit of the decision by the Maryland Historical Society to commission a new state history in observance of Maryland's 350th anniversary. Brugger takes as his central theme that Maryland's distinction historically was that it represented a middle way-between North and State, slave and free, traditional and modern, rural/suburban/urban. The book considers the interaction of major political, social, and cultural developments. It includes a valuable bibliographical essay; a chronology of events; sets of maps, tables, and figures; and extensive illustrations.
Calcott, George. Maryland & America, 1940-1980. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1985.
Annotation / Notes: Calcott examines recent Maryland history in its relation to major national trends over the period from World War II to 1980. Arguing that the state consists of four cultural areas-Baltimore City, Eastern and Southern Maryland, Western Maryland, and Suburban Maryland-Calcott considers the interaction of political, social, and cultural developments, both in terms of overall trends as well as in terms of their expression in the state's diverse regions. Major topics include post-World War II population growth and suburbanization, Cold War tensions, the Civil Rights era, political liberalism and the growth of the welfare functions of the state, educational and environmental developments, and the changing role of government.
