Did you know that: - the thirteen colonies which became the USA were not the most valuable British possessions in America? - Georgia was not the thirteenth but the fourteenth British colony in North America? - despite the claims in the Declaration of Independence, George III was not a tyrant? Information on these facts, and many many more, can be found in this fascinating and helpful A-Z guide. Colonial America's key events and personalities - from the first expedition to Roanoke Island in 1584 to the conclusion of the War of Independence - are readily accessible in this invaluable dictionary. Mary K. Geiter and W. A. Speck set the thirteen colonies which became the United States in an Atlantic context, dealing not only with the thirteen but also with Britain's other colonies in North America and the West Indies. The imperial connection is stressed too with entries on British monarchs and politicians, admirals and generals, Acts of Parliament and European wars which impacted on the American colonies. Also featuring a Select Bibliography and full Chronology to aid learning, this wide-ranging, clear and authoritative text is an essential reference for students, scholars and anyone with an interest in British America.

"American Colonies" starts with the earliest years of human colonization of the American continent and environs with the Siberian migrations across the Bering Strait 15,000 years ago. It ends in around 1800 when the rough outline of the contemporary North America could be perceived. Dropping the usual Anglo centric description of North America's fate, Taylor brilliantly conveys the far more vivid and startling story of the competing interests - Spanish, French, English, Native, Russian - that over the centuries shaped and reshaped both the continent and its 'suburbs' in the Caribbean and the Pacific. It is one of the greatest of all human stories.

This is a single-volume narrative history of the 13 North American British colonies which eventually formed the nucleus of the United States. The author covers the entire period from foundation and the first settlement of the Pilgrim fathers to the colonies' emergence in the 18th century as mature provinces with advanced economies and distinct cultures. In addition to the narrative chapters the author also discusses at length various important and recurring themes, notably the relationship between the settlers and the native Americans, the changing position and role of women, the beginnings of slavery, and the evolution of political and social structures. Arguing that the War of Independence was by no means the inevitable result of colonial ambitions, Richard Middleton provides a comprehensive history of the colonial period which shows it to be much more than simply the prologue to independence. Each chapter is prefaced by a chronology and is illustrated by maps and contemporary paintings and etchings. There is a substantial section of annotated further reading.
