Summary
"Writing Early America is a field report into the current historiography of the large body of historical writings on the broad field of early America in the eighteenth century, between the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 and the end of the American Revolution around 1784, as seen in journal literature written in the last decade. A comprehensive analysis of nearly four hundred articles in top-ranking journals, this book examines which topics provoke the most interest for early American historians. In addition to treating scholarship on the most important areas of current research-Indigenous history, slavery and race, and gender-this book also highlights how notions of empire provide a framework for colonial American history and even more so for new scholarship on the American Revolution"-- Provided by publisher.
