Its condition hardly encourages anyone either to take up with confidence a study of some particular aspect of it or, in a more general way, to try fitting New York and its affairs into the larger story of colonial America.

An excellent work: scholarly, thoroughly documented, lucid, inviting. Any serious student of provincial New York society and politics will find this book extremely rewarding reading.

This book introduces all the major players and describes the historical tides in which they swam. Highly recommended.
