Jack Tager is professor emeritus of history at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and coauthor of Massachusetts: A Concise History.
"A valuable source of information about the state that will be used and enjoyed by general readers and scholars alike. The alphabetical entries, the timeline, and the statistical appendix are all entertaining and informative. They illustrate a great deal about the distinctive history of Massachusetts and will provoke many more inquiries by students and interested citizens." - Lawrence W. Kennedy, author of Planning the City upon a Hill: Boston since 1630; "A personal guide rather than a compilation by committee, this volume offers a wealth of information selected and organized by a distinguished scholar of Massachusetts history for a general audience. Jack Tager should be congratulated for compiling this book." - Kerry W. Buckley, director, Historic Northampton"
