The colonial period witnessed the transformation of thirteen distinct colonies into an independent federated republic. This volume discusses the diversity of the colonial political experience a diversity that modern scholars have found defies easy synthesis as well as the long-term conflicts, policies, and events that led to revolution, and the ideas underlying independence. Volume 2 The Early Republic 1784-1840. Volume Editor: Michael A. Morrison, Purdue University. No period in the history of the United States was more critical to the foundation and shaping of American politics than the early American republic. This volume discusses the era of Confederation, the shaping of the U.S. Constitution, and the development of the party system.
