This series offers fresh interpretations of the people, events and influences that shaped America during the Colonial, Revolutionary and Early National periods. This era has been reappraised in recent academic thinking, providing new ideas and a shifting perspective on dynamic world events. Titles in the series focus on aspects of the social, cultural, political and imperial history of the Americas and the Atlantic world.
