WHAT HATH GOD WROUGHT
The Transformation of America, 1815–1848
He offers a panoramic narrative that discusses revolutionary improvements in transportation and communications that accelerated America’s economic development from an overwhelmingly rural country to a diversified economy in which commerce and industry took their place alongside agriculture. Howe weaves together political and military events with social, economic, and cultural history. His story of American expansion culminates in the bitterly controversial but brilliantly executed war waged against Mexico to gain California and Texas for the United States.
