In her book, Suspect Relations, Kirsten Fischer argues that the stability of the colony was based on the maintenance of a
hierarchical social order rooted in the image of the “proper” English family. Using Suspect Relations, Stono Rebellion, and at
least one other source from our readings, please answer the following questions: Why were colonial Americans afraid of defiant
women, defiant slaves, and/or defiant workers? How did their ideas about gender, race, and class influence the political culture of
the 17th and early 18th centuries?
