'... a new and thoroughly historicist view of early English colonization ... Fitzmaurice demonstrates that humanism was the primary lens through which the English understood the promises and terms of establishing colonies in the Americas ... Humanism and America is an intellectual history of the first order. Its influence on the historiography should be profound and it is especially important within the field of intellectual history because it demonstrates so convincingly the significance of humanism as an intellectual movement that influenced society and politics in England.' Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History
