This delightful little book highlights key themes in American history and culture. Written by the director of one of the most prolific collections on this subject, "Aspects of America: The American Museum in Britain" spans American history from its early settlers to the twentieth century and illustrates the complexity and density of American culture by drawing on the vast array of illustrative material on show at the museum: the North American Indians; The Great Awakening in the 1740s; nineteenth century explorers; the Spanish Empire in the New World; the China trade; The Shakers; and, American Folk Art. All these important landmarks in the development of America are brought to life by the paintings, furniture, maps, quilts, silver, glass, folk art and decorative art housed in this unique museum. The history of America is broad, wide and deep but this book offers a concise overview and a glimpse into the extraordinary collections at The American Museum in Britain.
