Book Review: William Penn, A Life by Andrew R. Murphy

Jon Kershner wrote a review of William Penn, A Life, by Andrew R. Murphy (Oxford University Press, 2018), a book which marked the 300th anniversary of Penn’s death and focuses primarily on his political career. The text also “carefully corrects some of the previous mischaracterizations of the nature of the relationship between Lenape and the early Quaker settlers,” according to Kershner. Check out the rest of the review by purchasing a copy of QRT’s Fall 2019 issue here. Have you read William Penn, A Life? What did you think of it?
