Edmund Morgan, Sterling Professor Emeritus at Yale University, examines the history of the American colonies from the arrival of the first settlers to the American Revolution. Filled with illuminating discussions of American leaders, the book's range is extraordinary-from the sex lives of the Puritans to the Salem witch trials and the effects of slavery on the soul of Virginia. No living historian has had a more profound role in shaping our perception of the American colonies than Morgan and The Genuine Article reflects his genius like no previous work.
Dividing his work into 24 essays with sections on 'New Englanders,' 'Southerners,' and 'Revolutionaries,' Morgan examines the history of the American colonies from the arrival of the first settlers in 1607 to the radical changes brought forth by the American Revolution.
