New York now has a new, comprehensive history book that chronicles the state through centuries of change. A richly illustrated volume, The Empire State begins in the early seventeenth century (when the region was still populated solely by Native Americans) and concludes in the mid-1990s, by which time people from all over the world had made the state their home. Throughout the book, politics, economics, culture, and social history all are emphasized, as are the important contributions made by ethnic groups and women. The Empire State serves as a successor to A History of New York State, for many years the standard one-volume account of the region but today outdated and long out of print. Now students, scholars, and history enthusiasts will find thorough and fascinating coverage in The Empire State. The authors―distinguished authorities on New York State―draw on current research and perspectives as they address such topics as * the Dutch colonization of the region, * the English province, * the Revolution, * antebellum society, * the abolition of slavery and the Civil War, * the New York City media, * New York's vibrant political culture, * labor and leisure * women's suffrage * immigration and migration, * the World Wars, and * the state's economic development. Readers from the Big Apple to Buffalo and beyond will find The Empire State, which provides equal coverage to "upstate" and "downstate" events and people, satisfying and informative reading.

From the Inside Flap:

"A rich resource and a reliable guide. Milton Klein and six knowledgeable authors turn the confusions and complexities of New York history into a clear political narrative -- from the Native American culture that was dislodged but never erased by European intruders to Hillary Rodham Clinton's election to the U.S. Senate in our own time."--Linda K. Kerber, author of No Constitutional Right to be Ladies: Women and the Obligations of Citizenship

"This book is an absolutely stunning achievement in terms of research, coverage, depth of analysis, and the clarity of its writing. It replaces all the other single volume studies of the Empire State. I congratulate Milton Klein on this notable feat."--Robert V. Remini, Professor Emeritus of History at the University at Illinois at Chicago

About the Author:

The late Milton M. Klein was Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. His books included most recently The American Whig: William Livingston of New York.
