Media reviews

"These two volumes [The Peopling Of British North America: An Introduction And Voyagers To The West] bring to a triumphant culmination not only a distinguished career but some of the best work of an entire generation of American historians .... He wants to come closer than any predecessor to a comprehensive account of immigration to British North America -- the origins, the motives, the experience -- and these volumes persuade me that he has succeeded....Bailyn has inaugurated one of the most important historical works of the last thirty years."

-- David Levin, The Nation

"A grandly conceived attempt to employ the newest techniques of historical research (notably computerized demographic analysis) to achieve an old purpose: the recovery of a people's mentality from beneath the layers of myth and received opinion that have obscured it....[Votagers To The West] is conceived on an epic scale and executed with heroic determination."

-- Andrew Delbanco, New Republic

"Voyagers To The West is a superb book.... Bailyn joins the imagination and organizing skills of a master scholar to powerful stylistic gifts....It should be equally admired by and equally as attractive to the general reader as to the professional historian."

-- R. C. Simmons, Journal of American Studies

"[Bailyn's] concern -- his passion -- is to make the emigrants and their experiences live once more.... His fusions -- of the general and the particular, of the abstract and the concrete, of thought and feeling -- are the ideal of modern historical writing."
