Praise for the first edition:*
"Strictly by the skill of his narrative, [Kammen] makes the experience of colonial New York anticipate the experience of the American nation."--The New Republic
"Colonial history at its very best...[Fills] a long-felt need."--The Washington Post
"An informed, eloquently written history of colonial New York--a book that far surpasses any one-volume treatment heretofore available on the subject....Colorful and lively. --New York Historical Society Quarterly
"In scope, depth, prose style, and organization, it is the best single-volume account of any colony."--The William and Mary Quarterly
"As of now, this is the best single voume history of colonial New York on the market. It is a judicious balance of fact and interpretation. Kammen writes with grace and uncommon skill....He also displays a refreshing awareness of, and appreciation for, the surviving remnants of colonial material culture."--Louis Leonard Tucker, Former State Historian of New York
"Monumental."--Library Journal
"This is colonial history at its very best, scholarly but not shcolastic, subtly and brilliantly organized, most elegantly written, and filling a long-felt need. One could hardly ask for more."--The Washington Post
"Michael Kammen has produced an informed, eloquently written history of colonial New York--a book that far surpasses any one-volume treatment heretofore available on the subject....A 'modern' account of pre-Revolutionary New York that will satisfy the most professional historians. At the same time, the general reader is well served, for Kammen's presentation is colorful and lively."--New York Historical Society Quarterly
"Fills a long-standing need."--Lawrence H. Leder, The American Historical Review
"An excellent synthesis of scholarship on New York's pre-Revolutionary history."--Jacob Judd, The Journal of American History
