This volume presents a survey of the rich heritage of the city of Massachusetts, showing how it has long exerted an influence disproportionate to its size. The authors argue that the experiences of the people of Massachusetts have been emblematic of larger themes in American history.

Richard D. Brown is professor of history at the University of Connecticut. His latest book is The Strength of a People: The Idea of an Informed Citizenry in Early America, 1650--1870. Jack Tager is professor of history at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and coeditor of the Historical Atlas of Massachusetts (University of Massachusetts Press, 1991).
A welcome volume that will fill an important niche, since there is no general history of Massachusetts currently in print. It covers the history of the state nicely, combining broad historical generalization, often supported by good use of statistical and other hard data, with character sketches of significant figures from different eras of the state's history. The book will immediately become the standard history.--James O'Toole, Boston College
