MEDIA REVIEWS

What one has here is the genuine article -- colonial history that is fully about all the peoples in the region. This is neither 'white' nor 'Indian' history.... It is the first serious scholarly history of King Philip's War in well over a generation. Drake is a historian who knows how to write, how to make his subjects fully human, tell multiple stories, and keep his readers eager for more.--Barry O'Connell, editor of On Our Own Ground: TheComplete Writings of William Apess, a Pequot


The need for a single-volume treatment of King Philip's War that is well informed not only by recent scholarship on native peoples but on the English colonizers is greater than ever. Drake satisfies that need by offering a series of provocative theses about the conflict and its protagonists. The result is a book that should be as productively controversial as Jill Lepore's The Name of War.--Neal Salisbury, author of Manitou and Providence: Indians, Europeans, and the Making of New England, 1500--1643
