A Look Inside
Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 1991-10:
Ward's text incorporates recent scholarship and new areas of academic concern. Most teachers will welcome these "new history" additions, although most Colonial specialists are well aware of them. Ward has attempted to include varying interpretations into his narrative, yet this has not been done consistently. This effort has been supplemented by an excellent chapter-by-chapter bibliography. Regrettable, there is no list of illustrations and the captions are too brief. Take, for example, the illustration of Samuel Shrimpton: there is no indication whether the portrait is father or son, is anonymous or signed; there is no date; there is no mention in the index. There are only three maps, all taken from earlier publications. In general there are few errors. General readers. -C. R. Allen Jr., emeritus, Widener University
