In this history of colonial America, author Jerome R. Reich brings modern scholarly interpretation to bear upon classic research. Offering more than a political history of the American colonies, Reich covers the economic, social, and cultural aspects of colonial life, paying special attention to the roles of Native Americans, African Americans, and women.
This excellent historical presentation also includes maps, graphics, and updated bibliographies at the end of each chapter, which will prove invaluable to instructors who wish to elaborate on specific topic areas.
A survey of life in the period based upon past research and upon the revelations of the past 20 years. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
