Reviews - What do customers think about The Scots-Irish in the Carolinas (Kennedy, Billy. Scots-Irish Chronicles.)?
Needed an editor Jul 15, 2008
This book should have contained very useful and interesting information on the Scots-Irish in the Carolinas, but instead it reads like a biased diatribe of the vaunted religiosity of the Scots Irish and their persecution under other groups. I happened to see the author at the Scottish Highland games in Atlanta a few years ago, and was further unimpressed with his partisanship. However, I may be a little sensitive to the attitudes unnecessarily inserted into his book, since I lived in Belfast as a protestant American during my childhood, and witnessed first-hand the result of such thinking. I just wish this had been a more academic endeavor.
Not very helpful Sep 25, 2002
I did not find this book to be helpful. I thought it was unorganized and the lack of footnotes or other citations made it useless.
Scotch-Irish in the Carolinas Aug 1, 2000
I found this book to be very informative. It provides some information genealogically and describes the historical perspective of the region. I bought both the Carolinas and the Tennessee book and found that there was repetition. Therefore, I recommend buying one book on the Scotch-Irish written by Mr. Kennedy.
