Editorial Reviews

"An absolutely superb collection in every aspect, A New Jersey Anthology covers all of the chronological and topical bases with remarkable comprehensiveness. Its contributions are not only appropriate to the purpose of the book; they have the additional merit of being very significant pieces of scholarship on their own, not only in the history of New Jersey but in American history in general... Maxine Lurie's illuminating headnotes for each article, which include not only shrewd interpretive insights but also bibliographical references, set this book significantly apart. In short, this is an excellent anthology, professionally done... Anyone who teaches in New Jersey will want to own a copy of the book, use it, and assign significant parts of it."Douglas Greenberg, Dean of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University
