Book Cover of "The Empire State"The Empire State

A new history of New York State, published by Cornell University Press for the New York State Historical Association.
The Empire State serves as a successor to David Ellis' A Short History of New York State, for many years the standard one-volume account of the state but today outdated and long out of print.
It has been over forty years since the last entirely new comprehensive scholarly history of New York was published.

Colonial Albany Project linkThe Colonial Albany Social History Project was formed in 1981 to understand community life in early America by studying the contributions of the every person who lived in the city of Albany during its formative years. The project has in-progress intensive, biographical studies of each of the 16,000 diverse individuals who founded and built the city of Albany. The Colonial Albany Project presents the story of early Albany people and their world to diverse audiences in publications, through public programs incorporating the popular appeal of creative exhibitions, video imagery, and music, and on its Internet website. This website was originally developed by internet historian Mary E. Sullivan and is now maintained by State Museum community historian Stefan Bielinski, who has spent decades researching this area
