- We can order this
The origins of Clarke County-how it came to be, and why-are examined here for the first time. Historian Warren R. Hofstra not only tells the story of the people who made Clarke County a separate place but also puts the movement for its formation in the context of Virginia and U.S. politics. It is a story fascinating in detail and rich in implication, for the issues that strained old Frederick to the breaking point-local control vs. an expanded federal government, conformity vs. pluralism, agrarian values vs. commercial pursuits-are still featured in the political debates today both regionally and nationally.
