The Frontier in American History
Courier Corporation, 10 Apr 2012 - 400 halaman
Written in 1893, this enormously influential survey revised previous interpretations of U. S. history with its exploration of frontier life's impact on a transplanted civilization. Author Frederick Jackson Turner examines in depth the frontier's role in developing a unique and democratic society and its promotion of self-reliance, independence, immigration, and westward expansion.
Subjects include "The First Official Frontier of the Massachusetts Bay," "The Old West," "The Ohio Valley in American History," "Contributions of the West to American Democracy," "Social Forces in American History," "Middle Western Pioneer Democracy," and many other topics. This edition features a new Introduction that traces the book's significance. Students, teachers, historians, and anyone with an interest in American history will find it a fascinating resource.
