囊括影响美国历史进程的大小事件的极简之书。

从最初发现新大陆时期的殖民地,到奥巴马当选总统的当今美国,《美国简史》从政治、文化、社会、宗教、科技等多维度展现了美国三百多年来的发展历程。本书虽为简史,却囊括了影响美国历史进程的大小事件,且视角客观,既论及光明和发展,又不回避黑暗和耻辱:殖民地时期,反对欧洲帝国压迫的同时伴随着对印第安人的驱逐;建国之父们将自由和平等写进宪法,妇女和非裔美国人却花了漫长的时间才取得与白人男性同等的权力;一面奉行孤立主义力图避免卷入国际纷争,一面又在各大洲扮演国际警察的角色……

In a miracle of concision, Paul S. Boyer provides a wide-ranging and authoritative history of America, capturing in a compact space the Here is a masterful picture of America's achievements and failures, large-scale socio-historical forces, and pivotal events. Boyer sheds light on the colonial era, the Revolution and the birth of the new nation; slavery and the Civil War; Reconstruction and the Gilded Age; the Progressive era, the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression; the two world wars and the Cold War that followed; right up to the tragedy of 9/11, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the epoch-making election of Barack Obama. Certain broad trends shape much of the narrative--immigration, urbanization, slavery, continental expansion, the global projection of U.S. power, the centrality of religion, the progression from an agrarian to an industrial to a post-industrial economic order. Yet in underscoring such large themes, Boyer also highlights the diversity of the American experience, the importance of individual actors, and the crucial role of race, ethnicity, gender, and social class in shaping the contours of specific groups within the nation's larger tapestry. And along the way, he touches upon the cultural milestones of American history, from Tom Paine's The Crisis to Allen Ginsberg's Howl.

full story of our nation. Ranging from the earliest Native American settlers to the presidency of Barack Obama, this Very Short Introduction offers an illuminating account of politics, diplomacy, and war as well as the full spectrum of social, cultural, and scientific developments that shaped our country.

在二十一世纪,美国人过着快节奏的生活,很少有人会放慢节奏来认真思考这样一个问题,即:他们生活的这片土地早在几千年以前就有人居住。在这块被我们称为北美洲(北美洲音译为“北亚美利加洲”,以佛罗伦萨制图师阿梅里戈·韦斯普奇[Amerigo Vespucci]的名字命名)的大陆上,最早的人类定居活动可以追溯到一万五千年前,来自西伯利亚的人类部族乘船或穿越已经消失的大陆桥来到了今天的阿拉斯加地区。随着移民的不断涌入,这些早期美国人逐渐向南、向东迁移,在气候和地形千差万别的新大陆上散布开来,形成了语言、社会组织、宗教信仰和生活方式各异的不同部族。
