While it lasted only sixteen months, King Philip’s War (1675-1676) was arguably one of the most significant of the colonial wars that wracked early America. As the first major military crisis to directly strike one of the Empire’s most important possessions: the Massachusetts Bay Colony, King Philip’s War marked the first time that Massachusetts had to mobilize mass numbers of ordinary, local men to fight. In this exhaustive social history and community study of Essex County, Massachusetts’s militia, Kyle F. Zelner boldly challenges traditional interpretations of who was called to serve during this period. Drawing on muster and pay lists as well as countless historical records, Zelner demonstrates that Essex County’s more upstanding citizens were often spared from impressments, while the “rabble” —criminals, drunkards, the poor—were forced to join active fighting units, with town militia committees selecting soldiers who would be least missed should they die in action. Enhanced by illustrations and maps, A Rabble in Arms shows that, despite heroic illusions of a universal military obligation, town fathers, to damaging effects, often placed local and personal interests above colonial military concerns.

Hilkey, Charles J. Legal Development in Colonial Massachusetts 1630-1686. New York: Columbia University Press, 1910. 148 pp. Reprint available April 2005 by The Lawbook Exchange. ISBN 1-58477-551-3. Cloth. $70. * Hilkey explores a fascinating aspect of the early colony's legal system: its denial of the binding force of English law in favor of an original legal system. Although the common law played a role, the colonists used it selectively and combined it with the provisions of the colony's charter, local statutes and scripture. One of the earliest books on the history of American law, this pioneering work was originally published in the series Studies in History, Economics and Public Law edited by the Political Science Faculty of Columbia University.
