About the Book

This volume provides a succinct, analytical, well-conceived, and nicely written account of the development of colonial North American thought and culture from 1680 to the eve of the American Revolution. Not an anachronistic search for the origins of later American cultural forms, it situates the subject firmlv within a transatlantic context. The author emphasizes the extent to which improving communications and expanding connections helped to incorporate colonial settlers into a larger British world by providing them access and inviting them to become contributors to a burgeoning public culture of print, which consisted of newspapers, magazines, books, and 1etters.Whereas during the first seven decades of the seventeenth century, the colonies had been little more than crude and isolated outposts of English culture, from the late seventeenth century, he contends, they increasingly became like Scotland and Protestant Ireland, intellectual and cultural provinces of an expanding British Empire. -Jack P. Greene, Journal of American History
