In this concise, accessible introductory survey of the history of the United States from 1790 to the present day, Edward J. Davies examines key themes in the evolution of America from colonial rule to international supremacy. Focusing particularly on those currents within US history that have influenced the rest of the world, the book is neatly divided into three parts which examine the Atlantic world, 1700-1800, the US and the industrial world, and the emergence of America as a global power. The United States in World History explores such key issues as: * the dynamics of the British Atlantic community * the American revolution * the impact of industrialization on the US * the expansion of US consumer and cultural industries * the Cold War, and its implications for the US. Part of our successful Themes in World History series, The United States in World History presents a new way of examining the United States, and reveals how concepts that originated in America's definition of itself as a nation - concepts such as capitalism, republicanism and race - have had supranational impact across the world.
