Misha Ewen, The Seventeenth Century. Students and researchers will certainly benefit from reading Between Two Worlds. Gaskill has illuminated a wealth of new evidence about the lives of Americas earliest English settlers...

T.H. Breen New England Quarterly Malcolm Gaskill has taken on a daunting challenge. He aims at nothing less than providing a general interpretative history of England's seventeenth-century New World colonies, all of them, from Newfoundland to Barbados. That he offers a strikingly original account of the conquest and settlement of English America makes Gaskill's splendidly written book even more impressive.

Ken MacMillan, Journal of British Studies One of this book's greatest strengths is its suitability for a wide readership of experts, students, and enthusiasts. Historians will be satisfied with the quality, relevance, and importance of Gaskill's central arguments, which are effectively developed throughout the book, but the lively prose, illustrations, and the breadth of the narrative also positions this book extremely well both for adoption in undergraduate and graduate classrooms and for prominent placement in commercial bookstores.

Reviews in History Gaskill has written an absorbing and ambitious tale

Madison Historical Review Gaskill's work may pave the way for future Atlantic historians to elaborate on not only the differences in colonization patterns among the European nations, but also, what these differences meant for the colonists and the way they perceived themselves in relation to the mother country

Times Literary Supplement According to Malcolm Gaskill's lively history of the first century of colonization, the last thing these intrepid emigrants intended to do was give birth to America... A powerful antidote to narratives that celebrate an exceptionalist American history untethered to its English past

The Guardian Malcolm Gaskill's absorbing account of 17th-century English colonisation in various parts of North America works against the grain of preconception to restore "a neglected dimension of the history of England".

History Today Gaskill's chapter headings are as colourful as his prose, which is also taut, direct and orderly... His hold on overlapping narratives remains impressive and confident. In fact the book may appeal most to those who want a rollicking adventure story, told with pace and much detail.

Donald M. MacRaild, Times Higher Education beautifully written, sweeping and yet fine-grained account ... There are many fine books on British and Irish migration to colonial America, and this deserves a foremost place among them, not least for its originality in being as much about England as it is about America ... Throughout this account, his scholarship and originality are worn lightly

Joan Redmond, Reviews in History Gaskill has presented us with a work of impressive scope, and also great depth ... This book represents an important contribu...
