Description - The Shaping of America: A Geographical Perspective on 500 Years of History by D. W. Meinig
This landmark book, the concluding volume in a magisterial series, presents the story of America's interwoven history and geography from 1915 to 2000. Discussing such developments as the automotive, neotechnic, and communications revolutions, the world wars, urban migration, and regionalism, D.W. Meinig offers unprecedented insights into the reshaping of the United States. "Meinig at his best: he presents a masterly synthesis of the cultural complexity of America, a compelling account of the dramatic but immensely complicated restructuring of its human geography during the twentieth century."-Graeme Wynn, Journal of Historical Geography "This work will shape the way many people view the United States for a long time to come. Essential."-Choice "This splendid work concludes the most ambitious writing project of any American geographer, ever. Global America meets and even exceeds the high standards set by the previous three volumes."-John C. Hudson, Northwestern University
