A Concise History of the United StatesBook - 1999
Though America is a new country by the standards of earlier civilizations, its history makes up in breadth, dynamism and flamboyance what it lacks in actual duration; only a few centuries ago, the most powerful nation in the world was nothing more than a network of trading posts. In this short survey, the author concentrates on those qualities in the American people that made their country's rapid transition not only possible but inevitable.
