This review is from: Colonial British America: Essays in the New History of the Early Modern Era (Paperback)
These essays are great for the serious student of colonial history, esp. graduate students, although Greene's writing style really needs work.

Scott Ansell says:
This review is utter nonsense. Not only is Greene's prose perfectly fine (not surprising as he is one of the preeminent writers on the period) but, and I really think this is important here, he didn't write almost any of this book. He co-edited this book, so unless the reviewer is really angry about the introduction, the fault lies elsewhere with the dozen or so contributors who wrote the essays that comprise the book. This book is an academic work aimed at the serious student (to this extent the review is correct) and the Murrin essay is important enough to be almost mandatory for anyone looking to tie the historiography of the period together.

Scott--break your pills in half before writing. XOXOX.
