Assistant Professor of History Daniel J. Tortora’s new book, Carolina in Crisis: Cherokees, Colonists, and Slaves in the American Southeast, 1756-1763, will be published May 25 by the University of North Carolina Press. The book identifies the many conflicts between British troops, Cherokee tribes, and settlers from 1758 to 1761 and explores the impact that the Anglo-Cherokee War had on the colonial South.

Jim Piecuch, a professor at Kennesaw State University, raved, “Daniel J. Tortora’s Carolina in Crisis is an original and insightful work with impressive scope. That the author is able to synthesize from such a vast array of sources a coherent and engaging narrative is truly extraordinary. I’ve only encountered a handful of books that come close to matching Tortora’s work—a remarkable achievement.”
