Collected Essays on Bermuda's History

ByJonathan Land Evans

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Wide-ranging in topic and also in historical period, this 46-piece compilation of research-papers and shorter journalistic pieces is selected both from the author’s recent self-published paperback 'Essays' series of books (most of which finds a sturdy new hardcover home here) and from 'The Bermuda Journal of Archaeology & Maritime History' and other publications where Mr. Evans’s work has appeared over the last seventeen years. This new and enlarged 2022 edition incorporates additional material in the form of two essays that were written after the publication of the original edition of this book in 2019. Between these newly-pictorial covers the reader will find discussion of a rewardingly miscellaneous array of subjects, from political, military and social history to literary and artistic topics (including some book-reviews of both ‘vintage’ and recent publications of Bermuda historical interest). From slavery to poetry, and from painters and soldiers to convicts and rioters, there is much here for those with an interest in beautiful Bermuda and its history, including an important research paper on the history of the Gombeys; a detailed and informatively-discursive review of the error-prone recent history book 'Prudent Rebels'; a look at the largely forgotten rioting of 1970; and not one but two pieces (one of them new) about the controversial early-1920s Bermuda novels of Amy J. Baker.
