Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, uncut, 495 pp. Very Good++, with light foxing (age darkened spotting), in a like dust jakcet with slight fading to spine. Includes bilbiography, maps, and index. ̉This is the story of America, from Columbus and the Colonial Age through the War of 1812 -- told with rare eloquence and power by two eminent historians...They move perceptively through the complex ideological, economic, and social forces that led to the establishment of European colonies on the North American continent. And they describe the vigorous movement to independence...Here, too, is a first-rate military history of the American Revolution, and the awesome achievement of George Washington... And here are the sharp ideological debates after independence, between the followers of Hamilton and Jefferson -- a political and spiritual conflict that would shape the American experience forever.Ó
