Maxine Lurie and Richard Veit do more than just connect the chronological dots of our sprawling history from the first Lenape inhabitants 12,000 years ago to today's hectic lifestyles. They've culled the talents of 11 scholars and combined their insights and expertise into a resource intended for both students and a general audience. This being New Jersey, though, the volume is not without inflections of whimsy. These essays tell us about what was unique, significant, and not always well-known about New Jersey's colorful, diverse past, and they relate its history to the contours of American history more generally.

Maxine N. The state has a rich Native American heritage and complex colonial history. The nineteenth century saw major debates over slavery. While no Civil War battles were fought in New Jersey, most residents supported it while questioning the policies of the federal government.

The state has a rich Native American heritage and complex colonial history. Individuals interested in understanding the history of New Jersey’s native populations are dependent upon a handful of sources. These include archaeological evidence, historic and ethnographic sources, oral traditions, and comparative evidence derived from other societies that lived in similar environments or employed similar technology.

Richard F. Veit is a professor of anthropology and chair of the department of history.

Richard Veit an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Monmouth . One of the luxuries of being a scholar in New Jersey is it is often perfectly.

New Jersey: A History of the Garden State presents a fresh, comprehensive overview of New Jersey’s history from the prehistoric era to the present. The findings of archaeologists, political, social, and economic historians provide a new look at how the Garden State has evolved.

The state has a rich Native American heritage and complex colonial history. It played a pivotal role in the American Revolution, early industrialization, and technological developments in transportation, including turnpikes, canals, and railroads. The nineteenth century saw major debates over slavery. While no Civil War battles were fought in New Jersey, most residents supported it while questioning the policies of the federal government.

Next, the contributors turn to industry, urbanization, and the growth of shore communities. A destination for immigrants, New Jersey continued to be one of the most diverse states in the nation. Many of these changes created a host of social problems that reformers tried to minimize during the Progressive Era. Settlement houses were established, educational institutions grew, and utopian communities were founded. Most notably, women gained the right to vote in 1920. In the decades leading up to World War II, New Jersey benefited from back-to-work projects, but the rise of the local Ku Klux Klan and the German American Bund were sad episodes during this period. The story then moves to the rise of suburbs, the concomitant decline of the state’s cities, growing population density, and changing patterns of wealth. Deep-seated racial inequities led to urban unrest as well as political change, including such landmark legislation as the Mount Laurel decision. Today, immigration continues to shape the state, as does the tension between the needs of the suburbs, cities, and modest amounts of remaining farmland.

Well-known personalities, such as Jonathan Edwards, George Washington, Woodrow Wilson, Dorothea Dix, Thomas Edison, Frank Hague, and Albert Einstein appear in the narrative. Contributors also mine new and existing sources to incorporate fully scholarship on women, minorities, and immigrants. All chapters are set in the context of the history of the United States as a whole, illustrating how New Jersey is often a bellwether for the nation..

I'm in the middle of the book right now but it's been a great read thus far! As a longtime New Jersean, I find it really interesting to see how many familar towns and landmarks got to where they are. The authors do a nice job connecting NJ to U.S. history, which should make the book interesting to non-New Jerseans too. NJ has been a very important place in U.S. history! The level of detail is perfect - enough to give you real information but little enough to make it easy/casual reading.

New Jersey has a rich history which makes it something of a bellwether state for all 50. What's happened all over the country has, in one way or another, happened in New Jersey. There's plenty of history to explore.

This book makes an attempt to explore New Jersey's history from Native American settlement through modern suburbanization. Of course, with so much material you would expect the book to be a bit summary, and it is. The problem is, just because it's summary doesn't mean it has to be dry.

The book is arranged chronologically into chapters, each chapter written by an expert in that particular period of history. This is a hit and miss affair. Some of the essays are quite good, as is the case with Dr. Greene's offering on the Civil War in New Jersey. Others are painfully dry, being little more than a continuum of people, places and things described between two dates.

The editorial tone of the book is revisionist, which is not necessarily a bad thing. The book makes use of the latest historiographical tools and is based on solid evidence. No problems there. Because it is based on the latest available archives, there are some interesting things about New Jersey that are revealed in the essays that are quite different than what we have assumed in the past. More than a few readers will probably be surprised to learn about how New Jersey's status as one of the most RURAL of all the colonies had profound implications for its later development as a place of great cultural and religious diversity. Few readers will be familiar with New Jersey's history of slavery and its pro-South leanings before and during the Civil War.

Really, I'm just not a fan of the essay format, and I think it's overused. A book that is a collection of unrelated essays pulled together by an editor who really hasn't done any editing leaves a book like this with no narrative focus or identifiable thesis. It reads like a textbook.

If you're looking for a decent reference book, this is a good choice. If you're looking for engaging narrative history which encourages you to think more deeply about the topic, or makes you ask some important questions about it, this is not a good choice.

I suppose it was inevitable that a topic so broad would lead to a pretty superficial treatment but this book was for the most part very brief in its treatment of everything. Other than maybe the discussion of Edison's influence on the state's development of a technology base, the book read like a checklist of various themes in American history followed by "and it was like that in New Jersey, too." Almost like a long encyclopedia article.

This may be the best out there on the subject but it isn't very good.

I love history. This book is well written and provides new information about New Jersey's history. I loved reading the book.

The book omits much of the cultural history of the state as it largely focuses on demographics and social history. Little is told about the settlement of the towns and cities. No mention is made of Joseph Bonapartre settling near Bordentown or of Clara Barton's first public school also in Bordentown. Admiral Farragut Academy and Bordentown Military Institute are not mentioned. The company town of Roebling along with the giant steel mill located therein is not mentioned.
