CHOICE Review

Van Vugt (Calvin College), the author of two previous monographs on British immigration to the US (British Buckeyes, CH, Dec'06, 44-2313; Britain to America, CH, Feb'00, 37-3532), is to be commended for his comprehensive approach, archival diligence, and insightful writing. Each of the four volumes in this new set features three useful components. In addition to the evocative pieces of correspondence, the editor has devoted a large segment of each volume to an often-overlooked source: the individual biographies that appeared in US county histories during the late-19th and very-early-20th centuries. He complements these generally brief sources with more extensive primary accounts collected from the pro-immigration pamphlets of resettlement agencies and railroad companies, and the more evenhanded accounts of immigrants and local historians. This collection covers a wide geographic range as well, drawing on sources from both sides of the Atlantic and throughout the eastern and midwestern US. Van Vugt ably conveys the British perspective, using much of the unpublished correspondence originally collected by the venerable historian Charlotte Erickson (d. 2008). On the US side, van Vugt incorporates materials from Florida to Wisconsin, transcending the regional approach usually taken in previous collections. Finally, he includes a brief but wide-ranging introduction to each volume that summarizes the gathered sources and sets the background for them. He precedes each item with a brief introduction, placing the source within a larger historical context and highlighting its particular contribution to the field. This valuable reference work is an important addition to any immigration collection, offering new energy to the once-dormant field of British movement to the US. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. M. J. O'Brien Franciscan University of Steubenville
