America's Nation-time, 1607-1789
W. W. Norton & Company, 1976 - 260 páginas
The study of American history has become so complex in recent years that readers now often face a choice between a broad survey simplified to the point of distortion and daunting array of specialized studies. The need remains for a lucid overview of the principal events of each period of the nation's history, together with a balanced interpretation of their significance. Benjamin W. Labaree's America's Nation-Time provides such an overview and interpretation for the colonial period. A history of those men and women--English, European, and African--who transformed America from a geographical expression into a new nation.
