From the Publisher"It uses polished production values, current scholarship and thoughtful editing to provide students, scholars and lay readers a well rounded source for Colonial research."
Against the Grain
"An excellent contribution to the field, this encyclopedia's specialized subject matter makes it recommended for academic and special collections and highly recommended for American military-history collections."
"This set is the first in a series of encyclopedias tracing US military history. The three volumes cover conflicts between Europeans and Native Americans, slaves, and other Europeans—ostensibly up to the American Revolution. Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates."
"Part one of a projected 14-part series, this expansive set covers the turbulence that dramatically shaped colonial America. An excellent, 19-page introductory essay provides an overview of the period, chronologically covering the era from the founding to the imperial crisis in the 1760s and 1770s. The 875 alphabetically arranged, cross-referenced entries, which cover the political and social ramifications of each conflict, are even in scholarship and overall of high quality… While the temporal scope of this work may limit its appeal for smaller collections, it is a worthy purchase for larger libraries."
School Library Journal
"[This book] is a good companion purchase and lead-in to ABC-CLIO's earlier American Revolutionary War: A Student Encyclopedia, edited by Gregory Fremont-Barnes and Richard Alan Ryerson, which details the battles of the war era. High schools, colleges, and public libraries with a history inclined clientele will find this a valuable source."
"Anyone who imagines that prerevolutionary North America was not molded by conflict can benefit from browsing this encyclopedia, which is written for the general public but also contains a volume of original documents. . . . The prime market would be undergraduates learning to do research using original documents, but secondary school students would find the first two volumes useful, while scholars would appreciate the third."
Reference & User Services Quarterly
"Individually, the entries are well researched, clearly written, and contain helpful references and cross-indexes. Collectively, this user-friendly three-volume work spans a wide range of topics and is heavily illustrated. One can easily imagine both students and scholars making The Encyclopedia of North American Colonial Conflicts to 1775 their starting point for research on this topic."
