Publisher Comments:

The first comprehensive history of Norfolk to appear since 1930, Norfolk: The First Four Centuries tells the story of America's largest maritime port from the first contact between a Spanish sailor and a Chiskiack man in 1561 to the city's late twentieth-century concerns, including pollution of the Chesapeake Bay, urban development, traffic in illegal guns, and racial tensions.<P>Norfolk's splendid harbor made it an early refuge for mariners against the threat of Atlantic pirates and storms, and later gave it natural advantages as a seaport. Incorporated as a town in 1680, Norfolk has survived epidemics, hurricanes, total destruction in the Revolutionary War, and occupation in the Civil War to become Virginia's largest city, a bulk exporter and coaling station and the world's foremost naval base. Thomas C. Parramore and his research assistants include the lives and contributions of hundreds of the city's little-known citizens, including African Americans and other minorities, as well as its celebrated sons and daughters.<P>Norfolk: The First Four Centuries details the events, some tragic, some amusing, that have given the city its rich, diverse, enduring character.
