Description

Multinational, profit-driven, materialistic, power-hungry, religiously plural: America today -- and three hundred years ago. Jon Butler's panoramic view of the mainland American colonies after 1680 transforms our customary picture of prerevolutionary America; it reveals a strikingly "modern" character that belies the eighteenth-century quaintness fixed in history. Stressing the middle and late decades (the hitherto "dark ages") of the American colonial experience, Butler shows us vast revolutionary changes in a society that, for ninety years before 1776, was already becoming America.
