Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This collection of essays on seventeenth-century Virginia, the first
such collection on the Chesapeake in nearly twenty-five years, highlights emerging directions in
scholarship and helps set a new agenda for research in the next decade and beyond. The contributors
represent some of the best of a younger generation of scholars who are building on, but also
criticizing and moving beyond, the work of the so-called Chesapeake School of social history
that dominated the historiography of the region in the 1970s and 1980s. Employing a variety of
methodologies, analytical strategies, and types of evidence, these essays explore a wide range of
topics and offer a fresh look at the early religious, political, economic, social, and intellectual
life of the colony.
