9780674413214: The Huguenots in America: A Refugee People in New World Society (HARVARD HISTORICAL MONOGRAPHS)

In this first modern history of the Huguenots' New World experience, Jon Butler traces the Huguenot diaspora across late seventeenth-century Europe, explores the causes and character of their American emigration, and reveals the Huguenots' secular and religious assimilation in three remarkably different societies—Boston, New York, and South Carolina.

About the Author:

Jon Butler is the William Robertson Coe Professor of American Studies and History, and Professor of Religious Studies, at Yale University.

Review:

A singular achievement unparalleled by prior studies...will no doubt remain the standard synthesis for years to come...From the perspective of the new social history, Butler draws upon theoretical underpinnings derived from social science studies in structural assimilation and social disintegrations to yield fresh insights. (Choice)

A landmark in the recovery of the Huguenot experience in colonial America and an excellent case study with wider value for the understanding of the social and religious travails of the American immigrant.
--Leigh Eric Schmidt (Journal of the American Academy of Religion)

An important, well-wrought book on the Huguenot experience...[that relates] the story of [Huguenot] exiles and their failure to maintain religious and social distinctiveness in diaspora.
--Stephanie Graumann Wolf (American Historical Review)
