Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This entry in the "Great American Political Documents" series examine the events that brought about the establishment of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the proceedings which shaped its Charter. Each chapter begins with a quote from the title document and proceeds to reveal its significance. The initial chapter discusses the reasons a new colony was deemed necessary. Important persons and events are listed as headings within each chapter. Subsequent chapters discuss early English settlements in North America, Massachusetts Bay Colony's charter, both religious and civil conflicts, and the rights of the colonists and others. This last chapter includes brief discussions about slavery and women's rights. A few photographs accompany standard stock black-and-white illustrations. A relatively large typeface will not discourage reluctant researchers. Information is presented clearly and concisely and may be of benefit to young scholars; however, there are several instances of poor editing. A reference to "deer meet" is made by the author, not taken from a document. In addition, the entire Pequot tribe is said to have been wiped out, but the next sentence talks about survivors. The layout of the series sports a large, readable typeface with plenty of white space that belies the YA reading level. The books reviewed present competent, concise explanations of the documents in question. Students will find them quite useful in understanding the events and circumstances that prompted the creation of the documents. Other titles in the series include The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence, The Iroquois Constitution, and The U.S. Constitution. 2003, Rosen, 112p.;Glossary. Index. Bibilo. Illus. Photos. Further Reading. Chronology., PLB. Ages 11 to Adult.

Gr 7-10-This volume opens with an account of the events in English history that forced many to seek a better life in a new land. Subsequent chapters describe the settlement of Jamestown, Plymouth, and Salem, and the settlers' successes and troubles. The primary focus of the book is the struggle to establish laws and a government. Each chapter is introduced with a quotation from the 1629 Massachusetts Bay Colony Charter. As the history unfolds, important personalities emerge-John Smith, Pocahontas, Charles I, John Winthrop, Roger Williams, Anne Hutchinson, John Harvard, and others-and their significance is revealed. The relations the colonists had with the Native Americans, the role of women in the colony, and the beginnings of slavery are also addressed. Average-quality, black-and-white photos and reproductions appear throughout. The full text of the charter is appended along with sources of further information and a comprehensive index. This is not a ready-reference book where one can find quick answers to questions about the subject but rather a history that must be read from cover to cover.-Dana McDougald, Cedar Shoals High School, Athens, GA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
