About this product
- DescriptionIn a sweeping synthesis of a crucial period of American history, From Dependency to Independence starts with the problem of New England's ecomic development. As a struggling outpost of a powerful commercial empire, colonial New England grappled with problems familiar to modern developing societies: a lack of capital and managerial skills, a nexistent infrastructure, and a domestic ecomy that failed to meet the inhabitants' needs or to generate exports. Yet, less than a century and a half later, New England staged the war for political independence and the industrial revolution. How and why did this transformation occur? Marshaling an ermous array of research data, Margaret Ellen Newell demonstrates that colonial New England's ecomic development and its leadership role in these two American revolutions were interrelated.
- Author BiographyMargaret Ellen Newell is Professor of History at The Ohio State University.
