The book presents the Atlantic coast history as a story of interaction and adaptation among the peoples of the four continents, and discusses the variety of social, political, environmental, and cultural processes set in motion by European exploration and settlement. Beginning with a chapter on the pre-Columbian background of Europe, Africa, and North and South America, this lively narrative traces the history of colonial America to 1763. Covering British, Spanish, French, and Dutch colonization, the book examines colonial development in the North American colonies along the Atlantic coast and in the borderlands, the North American interior, and the Caribbean.

"The second edition of Colonial America in an Atlantic World, like the first, responds to a growing interest among teachers and students in a broad and exciting field commonly known as Atlantic History. The approach greatly expands the human and physical boundaries of the subject, which once only looked at white settlers organizing new forms of religion and government. This traditional perspective left too many people out of the story. We have, therefore, tried to present the history of Colonial America in terms of dynamic interaction among the peoples of four continents over several centuries. The world in which these diverse peoples fought, traded, befriended, allied, betrayed one another, made love, married, and bore children was an extraordinarily complex and fluid multiplicity of communities, a vast region in which nations remained in constant flux from fifteenth century through the end of the eighteenth and beyond"--Provided by publisher.

Set mostly within an expansive British imperial and transatlantic framework, this new selection of writings from the renowned historian Jack P. Greene draws on themes he has been developing throughout his distinguished career. In these essays Greene explores the efforts to impose Old World institutions, identities, and values upon the New World societies being created during the colonization process. He shows how transplanted Old World components—political, legal, and social—were adapted to meet the demands of new, economically viable, expansive cultural hearths. Greene argues that these transplantations and adaptations were of fundamental importance in the formation and evolution of the new American republic and the society it represented. The scope of this work allows Greene to consider in depth numerous subjects, including the dynamics of colonization, the development and character of provincial identities, the relationship between new settler societies in America and the emerging British Empire, and the role of cultural power in social and political formation.

A multicultural, multinational history of colonial America from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Internal Enemy and American Revolutions In the first volume in the Penguin History of the United States, edited by Eric Foner, Alan Taylor challenges the traditional story of colonial history by examining the many cultures that helped make America, from the native inhabitants from milennia past, through the decades of Western colonization and conquest, and across the entire continent, all the way to the Pacific coast. Transcending the usual Anglocentric version of our colonial past, he recovers the importance of Native American tribes, African slaves, and the rival empires of France, Spain, the Netherlands, and even Russia in the colonization of North America. Moving beyond the Atlantic seaboard to examine the entire continent, American Colonies reveals a pivotal period in the global interaction of peoples, cultures, plants, animals, and microbes. In a vivid narrative, Taylor draws upon cutting-edge scholarship to create a timely picture of the colonial world characterized by an interplay of freedom and slavery, opportunity and loss. "Formidable . . . provokes us to contemplate the ways in which residents of North America have dealt with diversity." -The New York Times Book Review

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Hear Ye!!! In this 5th eBook/Book, considered NPS’s most significant (magnum opus) manuscript, I hold the set forth “truths to be self-evident that all” the Virginia Colonial Records I read (London Court Records & the Virginia Company of London) were used to reflect the hard facts exposed in the previous four (4) eBooks/Books to the best of my abilities for expression, and this research paper is its supplement which now makes this 10 year research project the product of a ‘5 eBook/Book Series’. Whereas, this document serves as the approval, again, from Our Billions of Celestial Ancestors who came before Us to make these earth-shaking announcements to the World. Whereas, the Expose' of these hidden facts is America's "Worst kept Secret" for over 400 years. Whereas, the Virginia Colonial Court and Company (Virginia Company of London) Records validate the authenticity of these events/documents for: 1) Documenting the 1st 12-year period of the Virginia Colony, 1607 to 1619 AD. 2) Now, based upon these noted Records, You (especially our Younger Generations) are Highly Justified to CLAIM that the majority years of this 1st 12-period of the Virginia Colony indulged itself in a period of sanctioned Institutional slavery (nine-consecutive years) upon its inhabitants using harsh measures, while the three previous years comprised a period of consistent starvation; and 3) From this research project, why and how this 1st 12 years embodied such conditions of slavery and starvation. Whereas, NPS has been granted, in October 2022, the U.S. Registered Tradename (Service Mark) “Novemberteenth / Aprilteenth” to fulfill the following ‘Goods and Services’: “Providing…publications in the nature of e-books and books in the field of education associated with the end of White Slavery in the Virginia Colony, November 18, 1618 AD and/or April 19, 1619 AD.” Whereas, another Historian measured and assessed such authentic evidence and I rendered his conclusions to this Book “Novemberteenth / Aprilteenth II;” Whereas, within this 1st 12-year period there comprised only White (European) Slaves of not more than 2,000 colonists. Whereas, the Survivors' Testimonial Document of 1624 AD is archived in the Colonial Records of Virginia and set forth herein this paper, and contained in it a shocking suggestion for the later generations, Us, to use: the application of the notion of Censure to determine whether their 12-year treatment in the Virginia Colony was ‘run morally and properly’. Whereas, the Survivors' Freedom Document dated November 18, 1618 (Emancipation Proclamation if you will), officially called "Instructions to George Yeardley," declared absolute freedom to all the Survivors (roughly 400 inhabitants) has been hidden from the history books of American Public Education for over 400 years this past November 2022; this document was delivered to the Survivors of this Slave Colony in April 19, 1619 AD. Whereas, it be known that the year 1619 AD, authenticated the beginning of a structured Institution/System for Indentured Servitude, and distribution of acreage ([Reparations] case law); and Whereas, a Script for a Screenplay has been prepared for a movie/film of this 1st 12-year period of the Virginia Colony with a sneak preview of its timeline contained in this research paper. Now, Therefore, I, George Rainey, Jr. (Elder) do proclaim the statements of authenticity of factual events/documents stand, henceforth, certified because such facts were retrieved from the Colonial Records of Virginia.
