"A welcome volume that will fill an important niche, since there is no general history of Massachusetts currently in print. It covers the history of the state nicely, combining broad historical generalization, often supported by good use of statistical and other hard data, with character sketches of significant figures from different eras of the state's history. The book will immediately become the standard history."―James O'Toole, Boston College
