An important, well-wrought book on the Huguenot experience…[that relates] the story of [Huguenot] exiles and their failure to maintain religious and social distinctiveness in diaspora.—Stephanie Graumann Wolf, American Historical Review

A landmark in the recovery of the Huguenot experience in colonial America and an excellent case study with wider value for the understanding of the social and religious travails of the American immigrant.—Leigh Eric Schmidt, Journal of the American Academy of Religion

A singular achievement unparalleled by prior studies…will no doubt remain the standard synthesis for years to come… From the perspective of the new social history, Butler draws upon theoretical underpinnings derived from social science studies in structural assimilation and social disintegrations to yield fresh insights.Choice
