Editorial Reviews

Review

Named one of the best books of 2017, Philadelphia Inquirer
 
"Spero ... spins a fascinating tale of history in Pennsylvania's backwaters." Harold Brubaker, Philadelphia Inquirer


"This fascinating book will undoubtedly - and deservedly - remain a standard work on the topic." - Journal of the American Revolution
  
"An ambitious book ... Anyone interested in early Pennsylvania or the history of the American frontier will find much to admire in this important book."  Judith Ridner, Journal of Interdisciplinary History


"This important new work takes what some have called 'the f-word' of American history (frontier) and returns it to polite conversation. Starting with the common-sense idea that we should try to understand what colonists meant when they called themselves 'frontier people,' Patrick Spero suggests how Pennsylvania, 'the Keystone State,' can indeed be a keystone for understanding not only early America but the 'frontier country' that followed after 1776."--James H. Merrell, author of Into the American Woods
 
[A] thought-provoking new study of Pennsylvania's wars with neighboring peoples over its first hundred years ... [that] breathes new life into the age-old problems of frontiers, power relations, and forms of government. There is a great deal here worth thinking about, and worth thinking about carefully." William H. Carter, Western Historical Quarterly
 
"Spero ... offers a compelling argument for renewed attention to early American conceptions of the frontier." - James Rice, Journal of Southern History
 
 
"Engagingly written and impressively documented" - Jack Brubaker, Intelligencer Journal, LancasterOnline.com
 
"A must read for anyone seriously interested in colonial history." StrayegyPage.com
  
"Scholars of early Pennsylvania, the American Revolution, and especially of "frontier studies" will find Spero's book immensely valuable to understanding the intersection of all three." - Pennsylvania History


"Patrick Spero's resuscitation of the concept of the frontier adds considerable analytical power and striking new dimensions to familiar stories of Pennsylvania's founding and early development."--Eric Hinderaker, University of Utah
 
"Frontier Country is well-conceived and well-executed, with an original interpretive design that shows how ideas about 'frontier' and 'frontier society' shaped relations within Pennsylvania between colonists and Native Americans and between eastern elites and western settlers."--Timothy Shannon, Gettysburg College
 
"Frontier Country sets an outstanding example of the ways that these forms of micro- and macroanalysis can be effectively combined in literary, history, and cultural studies, with persuasive and compelling results." - Keri Holt, Early American Literature


"Historians have puzzled at the paradox of Pennsylvania's frontier, wondering how a seemingly harmonious region devolved into a space of terror by the time of the America Revolution. In this deeply researched and engagingly written new work, Patrick Spero shows that the problem of frontier governance vexed the colony from the start. The result is a marvelous book that deepens our understanding not just of Pennsylvania's history but the of broader history of imperial politics in eighteenth-century British North America."--John Smolenski, University of California Davis
 
"[Spero's] novel formulation of "frontiers" raises the question of where else historians of early America and the Atlantic World might find similar conditions." - American Historical Review
 
"Spero's love of language manifests in his lucid writing style and the way he unpacks his terms, which forms the argument of his book. He breathes life into linguistic relics." - Ohio Valley History

About the Author

Patrick Spero is the Librarian and Director of the American Philosophical Society Library. He is coeditor of The American Revolution Reborn, also available from the University of Pennsylvania Press.
