In this tightly written study Darrett Rutman examines the essential elements of the colonial experience with emphasis on the emergence of the American identity. Professor Rutman focuses on the image of America in the English mind, the "cultural baggage" brought by the settlers from England to America, mercantile thought, the colonial milieu, government and politics, the empire, the Revolution, and the years of turmoil from the Revolution to 1789.
