Description - Europe, America, and the Wider World: Volume 2, America and the Wider World by William Nelson Parker

This volume collects Professor Parker's major writings on American agricultural and industrial history, including some essays not previously published. Taken as a whole, these essays give an account of why and how the United States grew rich in the nineteenth century, as well as a background against which to judge the present position of the economy and its international position. Professor Parker focuses on the nineteenth-century experience of the three regions of the United States--northeast, south and midwest, and shows wherein lay the sources of their wealth and growth into a flourishing nation. A final chapter, looking at European development from an American perspective, is especially timely in view of the recent movements toward integration and democratization in the "mother continent."
