Editorial Reviews

Review


"Tales from a Revolution is a welcome synthesis of the recent scholarship on important events of the late seventeenth century in the Chesapeake and the Atlantic world. The book is appropriate for undergraduate courses and the general reading public."--The Journal of Southern History


"Important contributions include highlighting the roles of warring Indian tribes caught amid impossible dilemmas proffered by the whites, and Indian perspectives. Recommended."--CHOICE


"Rice accomplishes a good deal with this provocative piece of storytelling. As a work of colonial history it is notably user-friendly and resonant. And as a work of historiography it poses pressing questions that all students of history should take seriously."--Jim Cullen, History News Network


"Rice energetically brings to life a large cast of characters-Indian leaders, British officials, colonial governors, wealthy planters--and puts Bacon's rebellion in the wider context of a colonial population largely poor and restless, Protestant-Catholic animosity, and the politics of Indian nations' relations with the colonists and with one another."--Publisher's Weekly


"Rice convincingly argues that this critical event in American history helped to create the Old South and the convergence of slavery, westward expansion, and issues of race. Tales from a Revolution compares favorably with Wilcomb E. Washburn's classic The Governor and the Rebel, which is now more than 50 years old...Any collection catering to scholars and fans of colonial American history will find this a worthy addition"--Library Journal
