Fanciful, repetitive, lacking substance, needs editing,
By A Customer
This review is from: King Philip's War and the Origins of American Identity (Hardcover)
The difficulties that I had with the book (repetitiousness, tediousness and a predilection for fanciful metaphors, speculation and conclusions) could be attributed to a promising young authoress in need of an rigorous editor. Or so I thought. But Mr. Wood in his Review of the book in the NY Rev of Books who saw these same defects suggests that these difficulties may represent a trend. He even puts a label on it. "Post modern history". I hope not!
