And, while the author offers some great information on when internal revolt engulfed towns, the work relies too heavily on one article by Maria Bogucka. It would also have been helpful to see empirically the number of towns that converted to Lutheranism and the number that were re-Catholicized.

In particular, it would have been useful to see Miller round home the significance of his work in a long and elaborate conclusion. Second, the book should have included more maps. Even a specialist in the field will get lost at times regarding the exact location of each town Miller discusses. In addition, the book uses an unorthodox and, at times, contradictory way of labeling town names. Most towns in East Central Europe have multiple names; Miller has decided to adopt the early modern names of these towns, except in the case of important towns. It is unclear why he made this decision, because there is no standardized table that allows for the labeling of towns based on what they were called in the early modern period.
