"This book's persistent attention to small traders is one of its great strengths (...) Haggerty's insistence that scholars look for connections rather than presume inferiority and isolation among lesser male and female traders should inspire other to tease patterns out of these same complexities and explore the larger implications for the Atlantic world." Ellen Hartigan-O'Connor, William and Mary Quarterly
