9780130895653: Colonial America

For courses in Colonial History, American Revolution, or Early American Social History.

Comprehensive without being superficial, this brief, up-to-date examination of American colonial history draws connections between the colonial period and American life today by including formerly neglected areas of social and cultural history and the role of minorities (African-Americans, Native-Americans, women, and laboring classes). It summarizes and synthesizes recent studies and integrates them with earlier research.

From the Back Cover:

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.

Now in its Fifth Edition, COLONIAL AMERICA provides an overview of the following major topics:

  • European and Native American backgrounds
  • Colonization
  • African Americans in the colonies
  • Immigration
  • Colonial agriculture, commerce, and industry
  • Colonial society
  • Colonial culture
  • The Revolutionary War
  • The Constitution

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.
