"This beautifully produced volume, with footnotes at the bottom of pages, clear maps, many unusual illustrations, and a valuable bibliography, will be of special and enduring interest to maritime historians of the Atlantic, the English empire, and London." -Ian K. Steele, International Journal of Maritime History
"Nuala Zahedieh's monograph draws on articles she has published over the past quarter century and adds additional material from her continuing research on London's commercial community and its fortunes in the late seventeenth century." -Kenneth Morgan, Journal of British Studies
"...this volume fills a scholarly gap through years of laborious archival research. Anyone interested in the colonial trade of the later seventeenth century owes thanks to the author." -Koji Yamamoto, The Journal of Modern History
"...Zahedieh's book points to the urgent need for further comparative studies on the Atlantic world from other vantage points than the port of London. For such studies, The Capital and the Colonies offers and excellent model." -Karel Davids, Canadian Journal of History
