Summary

Providing a survey of colonial American history both regionally broad and "Atlantic" in coverage, Converging Worlds presents the most recent research in an accessible manner for undergraduate students.

With chapters written by top-notch scholars, Converging Worlds is unique in providing not only a comprehensive chronological approach to colonial history with attention to thematic details, but a window into the relevant historiography. Each historian also selected several documents to accompany their chapter, found in the companion primary source reader.

Converging Worlds: Communities and Cultures in Colonial America includes:

  • timelines tailored for every chapter
  • chapter summaries
  • discussion questions
  • lists of further reading, introducing students to specialist literature
  • fifty illustrations.

Key topics discussed include:

  • French, Spanish, and Native American experiences
  • regional areas such as the Midwest and Southwest
  • religion including missions, witchcraft, and Protestants
  • the experience of women and families.

With its synthesis of both broad time periods and specific themes, Converging Worlds is ideal for students of the colonial period, and provides a fascinating glimpse into the diverse foundations of America.
