"This excellent collection of essays covers the sweep of New Jersey history from the colonial, proprietary era to the recent politics of Mount Laurel. It brings together some of the finest writing on the state, and raises questions relevant to major themes in American history more generally. Maxine Lurie has provided an excellent introductory essay to contextualize each piece in the collection, and each essay also comes with suggestions for further reading on the topic. With its broad coverage of political,
social, women's, African American, Native American, and labor history, the collection will appeal to the general reader and be of enormous use to those teaching New Jersey history in schools and universities."
