Colonial New York: A history (A History of the American colonies) by Michael G Kammen

Colonial New York stood as a precursor of American society and culture as a whole: a broad model of the American experience we witness today. Kammen's history is enlivened by a look at some of the larger-than-life personalities who had tremendous impact on the many social and political adjustments necessary to the colony's continued growth. Here we meet Peter Stuyvesant, director of New Netherland and an executive of the West India Company-a man facing the innumerable difficulties of governing a large, sprawling colony divided by Dutch, English, and Indian settlements

At the same time, the general reader is well served, for Kammen's presentation is colorful and lively. -New York Historical Society Quarterly. Fills a long-standing need.

The colonial history of the United States covers the history of European colonization of America from the early 16th century until the incorporation of the colonies into the United States of America. In the late 16th century, England, France, Spain, and the Netherlands launched major colonization programs in America. The death rate was very high among those who arrived first, and some early attempts disappeared altogether, such as the English Lost Colony of Roanoke.

Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (e. avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Book by Kammen, Michael G
Reviews: 5
It is a used book and it has markings in it, but then I was informed in the beginning that it would be a used book. So far it is pretty informative.
Most informative book
An enormous piece of work long needed for a fuller understanding of New York's history.
In doing geneaology research, I found that my ancestors came from upstate New York. This has been an invaluable help in understanding the geography and culture of those times. It's a keeper, for me!
Michael Kammen has put together an extraordinary amount of research into a fairly readable and swiftly paced book. Tracing New York City's history from the days of the Native Americans to its transformation to a Dutch trading post through its last days as England's colony, Professor Kammen's COLONIAL NEW YORK: A HISTORY is one of the more exhaustive studies on the subject ever written.
For me, the best parts of the book center on Peter Stuyvesant (whom Professor Kammen refers to as a "loser"--which he is, in ways). His study of the struggles between Dutch and English cultures in Section 7 is among the best I've ever read. While the book tends to sag during the sections about economic growth, it makes up for it in terms of valuable information. I shouldn't even mention that here: this isn't a novel, after all. In fact, it is a treasure trove of information which was all but lost to us until Professor Kammen wrote this book.
