The early Maritime Provinces were at the centre of a struggle for supremacy in the Atlantic World - "ground zero in the battle for North America," writes Jerry Bannister of Dalhousie University. This is the latest in our classic series of Planter Studies on the social, economic and cultural history of the region, reflecting the influence of the new "Atlantic World" scholarship and exploring the community structures, economies, loyalties and religions of Planter Nova Scotia.

Edited and introduced by T. Stephen Henderson and Wendy G. Robicheau of Acadia University, with chapters by leading writers and scholars in the field, including Barry Moody, Jerry Bannister, Jonathan Fowler, Allen Roberston, Julian Gwyn, Alexandra Montgomery, Patricia Rogers, Richard Connors, Keith Mercer, Kenneth Paulsen, David Bell, Daniel C. Goodwin, and Gwen Davies. Handsomely designed and printed for us by Andrew Steeves, Gaspereau Press.
