Education in the Forming of American Society: Needs and Opportunities for Study by Adams University Professor Emeritus and James Duncan Phillips Professor of Early American History Bernard Bailyn, Bernard Bailyn (Paperback / softback, 1970)
Exploring the mental worlds of the major groups interacting in a borderland setting, Cynthia Cumfer offers a broad, multiracial intellectual and cultural history of the Tennessee frontier in the Revolutionary and early national periods, leading up to the era of rapid westward expansion and Cherokee removal. Attentive to the complexities of race, gender, class, and spirituality, Cumfer offers a rare glimpse into the cultural logic of Native American, African American, and Euro-American men and women as contact with one ather powerfully transformed their ideas about themselves and the territory they came to share.
