This text examines how larger global processes have had a role in each stage of American development, how this country's experiences were shared by people elsewhere, and how America's growing influence ultimately changed the world. By examining American history through a global lens, Carl Guarneri creates a framework that situates specific American events within the larger realm of world history.
