Examines class structure and the development of early governments in Colonial America. Explains the different types of colonies, which colonies adopted which systems, and how they changed over time. Explores the impact of Bacon's Rebellion and the European Enlightenment, the changing status of blacks in the colonies, and the political differences that led to the American Revolution.
"It is quite thoughtful in its examination of the history, and even dispels some popular myths about colonial life. This is recommended for history collections serving middle-school and high-school students studying colonial America."
