"It is obviously written by a man who knows at first hand the literature, who indeed knows at first hand the terrain he writes about. Except in a few passages where he lets go a 'must have'...Mr. Folsom comes nowhere near writing purely romantic history. Be does eschew entirely any of the apparatus of scholarly history - footnotes, bibliographies, sources...there is surely a place for these interesting and deeply felt historical essays....This is not the dry, matter-of-fact, precise writing of the academic historian. It is good emotional writing. The essential is not to go to Mr. Folsom for what isn't there." - review by Crane Brinton, The New England Quarterly, Vol. 29, No. 1 (March 1956).
