My First Book Review – My review of The Jamestown Project by Karen Ordahl Kupperman, at PopMatters.

The book was very interesting, not as compelling as Nathaniel Philbrick’s Mayflower, but still a very worthwhile read. Much of the action of the book takes place not in Jamestown but in Europe itself, and Kupperman does a superb job in illuminating the society and culture of 15th century Europe as it dealt with a number of concerns and problems that would seem very familiar to contemporary Westerners: internal religious and political strife, a perceived Islamic threat, and the rise of corporate influences.
