Book News
With 667 entries, including bibliographies, and hundreds of photographs, facsimiles and maps this compendium answers a wide range of question about people, events, social trends, politics, economics and especially the innovations people on a frontier of the world had to make to start and maintain a new nation. Entries include significant information about military operations and diplomacy, social and religious movements, business and commerce and daily life; and many cover lesser-known topics and more subtle themes such as the importance of smallpox in the new American republic, the legalities of slavery, and the development of the class system and the distribution of education among the colonizers. This three-volume set is appropriate for general readers and for undergraduates as a first reference. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
