An outline of American History
Santrauka: Of the many inquiries that are received by the United States Information Service, a large proportion are concerned with American history. This book is an attempt to supply some of the answers in a concise and convenient form and to trace some of the major currents of thought and development in the nation,s growth. Tis is in no sense a definitive history of the United States; each of the periods here treated within the space of a few pages has been the subject of exhaustive research and scholarship. On pages 181-184 are listed the titles of a few of the many authoritative works available for the thorough study of American history. It is hoped that this volume will serve as a useful introduction to the subject and that it will thereby add to the store of shared knowledge and mutual understanding between those who read it and people of the United States.
