Summary
Between 1500 and 1800, the world was transformed. The peoples of Europe, Africa, and America, brought together in an often violent colonial process, created a New World and transformed the old. Although the individual British American colonies later formed into one nation, this course explores their profound differences in origin and practice. In 36 lectures, Robert J. Allison examines the relations of the colonies with the native people, the relations between these colonies and the colonial outposts of Spain, France, and the Netherlands, and how British attempts at colonial governance led, ultimately, to resistance, rebellion, and revolution
