Enlarged Edition (Norton - 1985) No marks or writing observed in text. Crayon marks on back end papers. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . A New England Town is a fascinating exploration of the evolution of Dedham, Massachusetts, from its founding as a haven for English Puritans in 1636 over its first century. An example of the local historical investigations in vogue during the latter 1960s, in which the author teases out details about an individual community but effectively draws linkages to broader concerns and themes, Kenneth Lockridge offered a compelling portrait of colonial life, society, economics, and politics in New England. Lockridge is a follower of the French Annales School most identified with Marc Bloch, Lucien Febvre, and Ferdinand Braudel which seeks to shift the focus from conventional historical themes and methods toward comprehensive human activity and large-scale social change over long periods of time. -- Roger D. Launius
