In the fields of early American and Atlantic history, there is no more prolific or provocative essayist than Jack Greene, whose articles as well as books over the past six decades have fundamentally reshaped the landscape of historical study. These essays, no less than earlier offerings by Greene, testify powerfully to the singular prominence that his work has long enjoyed.--A. Roger Ekirch, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, author of At Day's Close: Night in Times Past
Greene draws together vast amounts of information and proposes clear, general models... A familiarity with Jack Greene's work is a sine qua non for scholars of the early modern British colonial world.--The Historian
