"Many of the foremost scholars on New Netherland feature in this anthology that increases considerably the available scholarship on a key aspect of American history." -- Hudson River Valley Review
From the Back Cover
New Netherland's distinctive regional history as well as the colony's many relationships with Europe and the seventeenth-century Atlantic world are featured in the second collection of papers from the widely praised annual Rensselaerwijck Seminar. Leading scholars from both sides of the Atlantic critique and offer the latest research on a dynamic range of topics: the age of exploration, domestic life in New Netherland, the history and significance of the West India Company, the complex era of Jacob Leisler, the southern frontier lands of the colony, relations with New England, Hudson Valley foodways and Dutch beer production, the endurance of the Dutch legacy into nineteenth- century New York, and contemporary genealogical research on colonial Dutch ancestors.
Cogent and informative, these papers are an indispensable source toward a better understanding of New Netherland life and legacy.
