"This book is a welcome contribution, opening agendas for future research in many dimensions of mining history, and reminding exponents of any one national mining history against undue exceptionalism." * Australian Historical Studies *
"This excellent book provides a needed international perspective on gold rush histories. . . . The international perspective, and the explanation of the linkages among the gold rushes, make this book valuable for researchers of any of the individual gold rushes, of the political and financial histories of the countries involved, and of colonial history." * Journal of American History *
"The essays provide in-depth coverage of topics not typically discussed and help readers better understand the continuities and differences that distinguished the far-flung gold rushes of this period." * California History *
