The British in the Americas, 1480-1815, Paperback

The British in the Americas, 1480-1815 Paperback

Part of the Studies in Modern History series


Of northern European nations, the British had the greatest impact on the Americas.

Their history there embraces far more than the colonies that became the United States: England had been in the New World for a century before those colonies were established, and the British presence long outlived their loss.

This integrated account of that involvement spans the entire arc of British territories from the Caribbean to Canada, and the entire period from the first appearance of the English to the disintegration of the British and other Euro-American empires.

A fascinating story, engrossingly told, it fills a major gap in current historiography.
