The Shaping of America: A Geographical Perspective on 500 Years of History: Volume 1: Atlantic America 1492-1800

Yale University Press, 1986 - 524 pagina's
This entirely fresh interpretation of American history by a renowned historical geographer is the first in a projected three-volume series. Meinig here focuses on colonial America, examining how an immense diversity of ethnic and religious groups—Europeans, Africans, American Indians—ultimately created a set of distinct regional societies. Richly illustrated with more than forty specially prepared maps and contemporary illustrations, this volume prompts us to rethink the settling of North America.
