At the successful conclusion of the Revolutionary War, America could look back with pride on the accomplishments of the preceding three decades and look forward with excitement and trepidation to the challenges of shaping its new government. It was at this time that influential groups and people emerged and set the course for the young nation. Shaping of America, 1783-1815 chronicles and illustrates this important period when America forged its place at home and on the international stage.

"The complimentary material in each volume lends interest, information, and ease of use of the set. This reviewer's test using a standard reading-level calculator indicated that all four volumes averaged a minimum 12th-grade reading level. The set's format and extensive aids for students and teachers result in an outstanding resource for supplementary reading and research projects that would be welcome in secondary school libraries."
