Summary

This new Seminar Study surveys the history of U.S. territorial expansion from the end of the American Revolution until 1860.

The book explores the concept of 'manifest destiny' and key themes such as 'Indian' removal and the US government land sales policy. The author also looks at 'foreign'expansion such as the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and the war with Mexico in the 1840s and 'internal' expansion as American settlers moved west. Finally, the book addresses the most recent historiographical trends in the subject and asks how Americans have dealt with the expansionist legacy.

  • Covers major historical events-provides information about both 'foreign' expansion and 'internal' expansion.
  • Includes pedagogical features of Seminar Study-Who's Who, Glossary and selection of primary documents.
