Excerpt from An Economic History of the United States

The purpose of this book is not to rehearse the events common to political and constitutional histories of the United States, but rather to emphasize the points neglected by them. The keynote of all American history, from whatever standpoint it may be written, is found in the efforts of a virile and ener getic people to appropriate and develop the wonderful natural resources of a new continent and there to realize their ideals of liberty and government. The economic history of the United States is largely the story of the achievements of a people working under free competition, untrammeled by custom, tradition, or political limitations, and whose changing conditions of environment constantly compelled new adapta tions and promoted ingenuity and energy of character. The history of this economic struggle is not one whit less interesting or dramatic than the political history of the same period, while it is absolutely essential to a thorough understanding of the latter.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 626 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.3in.Excerpt from An Economic History of the United StatesThe rapid march of economic progress, the normal industrial changes of a decade, and the taking of a new census seemed to make a further revision of this work desirable. But more than any of these factors, the revolutionary changes which accompanied and followed the World War made necessary the addition of such new material. Advantage has been taken of the opportunity thus afforded to make a thorough revision of the whole book. It has accordingly been entirely rewritten; the introductory chapter in the old editions has been omitted; a few others have been combined; while new chapters on the Mining Industries have been added, together with a new Part covering the events of the war period and bringing the book down to date. In revising the work the author has endeavored to take advantage of various suggestions which have been made by teachers who have made class use of it. Greater emphasis has been placed upon the relation of cause and effect in economic development; it is meant to be more than a mere narrative of events. Above all things the difficult aim of making the subject teachable to young students has been kept in view.
