The United States in world history

Edward J. Davies (Author)
In this short, accessible introductory survey of the history of the United States from 1790 to the present day, Edward J. Davies examines key themes in the evolution of America from colonial rule to international supremacy. Focusing particularly on those currents within U.S. history that have influenced the rest of the world, Davies examines key themes including industrialization, the rise of international corporations, civil rights and popular culture. Offering a new way of examining the United States, this book reveals how concepts that originated in American's definition of itself as a nation - concepts such as capitalism, republicanism and race - have had supranational impact across the world.-- From publisher description
