Deals with the crucial period of American history from the Revolution to the Civil War. Unlike most books on American history, which have tended to concentrate on the developments in the United States of institutions which are more characteristic of Western European society than of American, Dr. Boostin has here aimed to interpret American civilization in its own terms, to see what have been its peculiar virtues and its peculiar limitations. A superb panorama of life in the United States during the 19th century. Includes an index.
