Jack P. Greene"Bertrand Van Rymbeke is perhaps the leading scholar of colonial British America and his book, From New Babylon to Eden, represents a major addition to early modern European migration studies. Notable for its exploration of the factors that drove the French Protestants to flee their country in massive numbers during the closing decades of the seventeenth century, the volume is clearly the best case study of the lives of these people in South Carolina, one of their principal destinations in America. Lucidly written, thoroughly research, and persuasively argued, this study will be essential reading for all serious students of the formation of the early modern Atlantic world. It is indeed a praiseworthy achievement."
