Long Description
Books on Early American History and Culture, 1971-1980: An Annotated Bibliography continues a series of bibliographies listing book-length works on North America and the Caribbean prior to 1815. Essential for scholars, librarians, and students of early America, the book surveys nearly 1,200 monographs, essay collections, exhibition catalogues, and reference works published between 1971 and 1980. In addition to bibliographic information each entry includes brief annotations, which describe the scope and approach to each item and the book's main thesis.
