Description:

Comprehensive and accessible, this first title in the series "Uncovering the Past: Documentary Readers in American History" offers a clear and original framework for studying the important issues in colonial American history. It opens with the maximum possible breadth, and then narrows the geographical focus in moving from the 16th/17th centuries to the 18th century. The author pursues thematic breadth as well, recognizing that it is also crucial for understanding colonial America. Visual images, in the form of fine art, are included, along with photographs of material culture remains, from porcelain plates, to reconstructed colonial interiors, to modern architectural drawings of colonial structures, to photographs of colonial houses as they exist today. Such sources help students consider exactly what a "primary source" is, and at what point does a modern transformation of that source turn it into a secondary source.
