“Warren Shaw is an accomplished scholar, and his treatments of key aspects of New York's past are distinguished by his use of legal and economic history to provide fresh perspectives.  His use of often previously little-referenced legal and archival sources has provided new lines of evidence for understanding of key periods and events.  He is a resource for New York legal, political and economic history.”
