Butler's panoramic view of the American colonies after 1680 transforms the customary picture of pre-revolutionary America, revealing a strikingly "modern" character that belies the 18th century quaintness fixed in history. 21 halftones.
Annotation:
In this study of the American colonial period, a historian examines the many factors that brought about great change in the colonies--and which simultaneously brought the colonies into the modern era and which defined what was a distinctly American experience and character.

Praise

New Republic
"[Butler's] book is a tour-de-force of synthesis [of current scholarship in colonial studies]." - Gordon S. Wood 06/12/2000

Times Literary Supplement
"...Butler has an eye for the odd detail or unusual instance that illuminates the whole. His discussion of religion is especially compelling and fresh." - Robert Middlekauff 06/16/2000
