Colonial British America Essays in the New History of the Early Modern Era by Jack P. Greene

Taken together, these essays constitute a better summing up--part critique, part appreciation--than anything else in print of work done in any field of American history. Nowhere else can we learn so easily and so well what to read about colonial America...A very useful volume of considerable distinction .--William Abbott, editor, The Papers of George Washington .


Colonial British America is a tour de force... It both summarizes and advances our understanding of early modern British America. -- E. Wayne Carp * Journal of Southern History * The study of colonial British America has made enormous progress in recent decades. Many of those who have contributed substantially to this advance here assess the changes for which they can claim responsibility, and no major historian escapes mention and discussion. -- Peter Marshall * Times Literary Supplement *
