The Louisiana Purchase: A Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia
ABC-CLIO, 2002 - 513 pagina's
Published in celebration of the Purchase's bicentennial, this resource offers a multifaceted view of a watershed American event.
Readers will learn how the purchase made Manifest Destiny really seem like destiny; how it sparked the rise of America's urban industrial society and inflamed passions over the expansion of slavery; and how it triggered tragic conflicts between the government and Native Americans as well as immeasurable environmental damage. Ideal for students, historians, and public and private libraries, the Encyclopedia is the most comprehensive reference ever compiled on an event so central to the American experience that it seems to lie at the heart of everything triumphant and tragic in our history.
