Book Description:

Often defined by the familiar images of taciturn Yankees, town meetings, maple syrup, and rocky seacoasts, New England is both a distinctively American place and a distinctive place within America. Yet these images present only one aspect of the richly varied region that is New England in the twenty first century. Today traditional scenes of white clapboard buildings surrounding an idyllic village green, hillside farms, and red brick mills rub shoulders with advanced research centers, nuclear power plants, and urban neighborhoods of immigrants from around the globe.

In entries written by leading authorities in the field, The Encyclopedia of New England presents a comprehensive view of this important region, past and present. Both authoritative and entertaining, this single volume reference will be an invaluable resource for the scholar and an irresistible pageturner for the browser.

The Encyclopedia contains

1,300 alphabetically arranged entries examining significant people, places, events, ideas,and artifacts

Fascinating and little known facts that rarely appear in history books

More than 500 illustrations and maps

Contributions from nearly 1,000 distinguished scholars and writers, including journalists, academics, and specialists from museums, industries, and historical societies

1.5 million words in 22 thematic sections, ranging from agriculture to tourism, each with an introduction by a leading specialist in the field

Extensive cross references and a full index
