Purpose of the Course

In this course, we will study the history of Colonial America. Along the way, we will consider:

Why did the peoples of America, Europe, and Africa come together on this continent? How did

contact with newcomers (and their diseases and technologies) change native societies? How did

native peoples affect Europeans and Africans? What common objectives, attitudes, and

behaviors did the European colonizers bring with them? How did they differ? Why did a slave

economy develop in the Americas? In what ways did Native Americans and African Americans

respond to Europeans’ colonizing efforts? Why did such different colonies develop on the land

that would eventually become the United States? How did the developments of colonial America

make possible the late eighteenth-century revolt by British colonists on the Atlantic seaboar

Author: A Jurisprudence is Performed (verified poaster )

Good Wives is a 180 book. I read it earlier this year - there is literally no cultural connection, zero, none, between the current day and the early American period. It might as well be a foreign planet and to call both this country and that "America" is an obvious farce that no one seems to notice.
