Explores how the most diverse society in the Atlantic world was shaped through two centuries of development

Written by highly acclaimed historian Gary B. Nash, this text presents an interpretive account of the interactions between Native Americans, African Americans, and Euroamericans during the colonial and revolutionary eras. It reveals the crucial interconnections between North America's many peoples, illustrating the ease of their interactions in the first two centuries of European and African presence to develop a fuller, deeper understanding of the nation's underpinnings.
