This is a splendidly researched and very convincing book that has some important things to tell scholars about life and trade in the early modern Atlantic community… Price has a superb command of his materials, both as they reveal the nature of the House of Perry, and as they tie that topic into the larger context of the tobacco trade and its development… It makes important contributions to an understanding of the nature of the Chesapeake trade and the forces shaping the success and failure of English mercantile enterprise during these years. In these respects, I believe the book is both a pioneering effort and a model for future investigation.—Richard R. Johnson, University of Washington
