Described as "the New York Review of Books for history," Historically Speaking has emerged as one of the most distinctive historical publications in recent years, actively seeking out contributions from a pantheon of leading voices in historical discourse. Recent Themes in Early American History represents the best writing on colonial and revolutionary-era American history to appear in its pages the past five years. This collection of recent essays and interviews from Historically Speaking demonstrates that traditional approaches still foster fresh understanding of the early American past and that original contributions to traditional topics continue to be made.
