New York History Geek's ultimate reference

The Encyclopedia of New York State
Peter Eisenstadt, Editor in Chief, Laura-Eve Moss, Managing Editor. The Encyclopedia of New York State is one of the most complete works on the Empire State to be published in a half-century. In nearly 2,000 pages and 4,000 signed entries, this single volume captures the impressive complexity of New York State as a historic crossroads of people and ideas, as a cradle of abolitionism and feminism, and as an apex of modern urban, suburban, and rural life. It is a massive (HUGE!) compendium of more than everything you ever wondered about New York State. An incredible reference - thousands of entries arranged alphabetically - with hundreds of illustrations, maps and tables extensively cross-referenced and indexed. An indispensable resource for lovers of New York State. (It weighs 8 lbs. and is the size of the Manahattan phone book!) 8.5x11 2000 pages hardcover $95.00 order: or email:
