School Upon a Hill by James Axtell
Book DescriptionThe School Upon a Hill is the first attempt to portray a view of education that, in the author's words, "enables us to see the educational process if not actually through children's eyes at least from their position in a Lilliputian universe." Its subject is socialization: the ways in which children in colonial New England were educated for life in society-whether it was the family, the church, or the larger community-and what they were taught that transformed them from cultureless newborns into functioning, obedient, and cooperative members of a distinctive society and culture.

Natives and Newcomers, Paperback (August 2000)
Since the 1970s, historians have come to realize that the shape and temper of early America were determined as much by its Indian natives as by its European colonizers. This volume describes the major encounters between Indians and Europeans and probes their consequences for both cultures.
