Editorial Reviews

Review

A singular achievement unparalleled by prior studies...will no doubt remain the standard synthesis for years to come...From the perspective of the new social history, Butler draws upon theoretical underpinnings derived from social science studies in structural assimilation and social disintegrations to yield fresh insights. (Choice)

A landmark in the recovery of the Huguenot experience in colonial America and an excellent case study with wider value for the understanding of the social and religious travails of the American immigrant.
--Leigh Eric Schmidt (Journal of the American Academy of Religion)

An important, well-wrought book on the Huguenot experience...[that relates] the story of [Huguenot] exiles and their failure to maintain religious and social distinctiveness in diaspora.
--Stephanie Graumann Wolf (American Historical Review)

Butler took the limited material in English, available at the time of his writing, added in his and others' translations (especially French sources) and crafted the best book yet about the Huguenot experience in the USA. It would be valuable for him to revisit the subject now (2013), using the massive translations of documents from the New Netherlads Project (12,000 + pages of materials). A Descendant of Huguenots, Charles H.

The information in this book could have been written in half the number of pages. Information was repetitive and did not hold my attention. Much of the book is based on various census records . I would not recommend this book.
