“The contributors to this impressive collection of essays share several common goals: to place the reforms of 1619 within an early modern intellectual context and to define Virginia as a laboratory for the social theories and colonization schemes that arose from such a context.”--Virginia Magazine of History & Biography
“Timely, fresh, and engaging. . . . Each chapter is lucid and compelling, reflecting the careful analysis of diverse and difficult archival materials.”--H-Net Reviews
"Timely and insightful, Virginia 1619 brings together influential transatlantic scholars to assess debates around race, gender, and political authority from the colonial British Atlantic. Its authors convincingly demonstrate how both deliberate and haphazard decision making in 1619 Virginia ultimately structured a world of inequality with resonance into the present."--Audrey Horning, College of William & Mary and Queen's University Belfast
"In Virginia 1619, an array of renowned and up-and-coming scholars postulates 1619, when African people first appear in Virginia's records, as pivotal in the history of the colony. Any consideration of seventeenth-century English overseas interests and the development of Anglo-America must reckon with the analyses they offer."--L. H. Roper, State University of New York, New Paltz
"A splendid collection centered on a pivotal moment in British, American, and Virginia history. Deeply researched and judiciously crafted, the essays are graced with degrees of thought and originality not always found in such abundance in anthologies by multiple authors."--Warren M. Billings, University of New Orleans
