Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Gilberto Villahermosa on January 10, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This very well written and extremely interesting history of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is one of the only general histories of the State available.

Authors and Professors Richard Brown and Jack Tager have compiled an enjoyable read that touches on every important aspect of the State's history - from the earliest English settlements to the modern day Commonwealth. The reader quickly discovers that Massachusetts is a tremendously diverse and wonderful place to live or visit!

Finally, the "Suggested Readings" portion of this book details dozens of other specific works for those interested in finding out more about the history of Massachusetts.

The reader will be challenged to find a better general history of Massachusetts!

The authors do a great job of taking snapshots of Massachusetts from the days of the "city on a hill" to the modern day. This is a fantastic book for anyone interested in delving in the social, political and economic history of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts!

This has been my holiday reading while visiting my daughter from the UK. I like to understand my surroundings and this book provides copious detail, story and explanation on how what I see around me is the way it is. It provides a useful counterpoint to my other US history source - Zinn, A Peoples' History - since it has a better feel for the ideas and beliefs that have motivated Americans - superstructure - as well as recounting the business, economic and technological histories - basis, if you like.
