Abstract

Book Reviews { 801 One last critique concerns chapter 9, “Warning in the Midst of Imperial Crises.” While the information in this chapter is valuable and insightful, the chapter overall seems qualitatively different from the others, lacking the same degree of in-­depth analysis and cohesion while it addresses major events such as the French and Indian War and the coming of the American Revolution with the Stamp Act crisis. Here, the authors are less successful in weaving the stories of warning into those of the life and events in Boston at the time, making that chapter less vibrant and engaging. Despite these critiques, I believe that Robert Love’s Warnings is an invaluable contribution to early American historiography, especially because of the authors’ capabilities at integrating many different kinds of histories—such as military, social, and political—into an engaging and captivating narrative about the social fabric in early America. There is much to learn from Dayton and Salinger about combining the analysis of one compelling source like the journals of Robert Love with a wide variety of other sources to bring to life one of the most important cities in early America. gabriele gottlieb   Grand Valley State University In the
