Looking Back at the Latest WMQ Reviews

Here are links to pertinent book reviews in the latest issue of the William & Mary Quarterly. Check out the contents page, or click below to bring them through as PDF files:

The full names in the lines above are the reviewers, the surnames the book authors who did the hard work. None of the Bells are relations.

And of course I must mention that the July issue’s reviews include Barry Levy’s evaluation of Children in Colonial America, edited by James Marten. (“J. L. Bell persuasively analyzes the central role that independent children played in patriotic Boston mobs before the Revolution”—have I mentioned that before?)
