Empire, Capitalism, and Democracy: The Early American Experience documents the history of the United States from the opening of the Atlantic World to the post-Civil War era. The primary sources included were created by women and men who lived during this time and illustrate three interdependent forces that animated the history of early America: empire, capitalism, and democracy.

Part I of the anthology explores the origins of European contact with America, "new world" civilizations, and the Atlantic slave trade. In Part II, students read sources that address American independence from British rule, early ideas of liberty and equality, the creation of the U.S. Constitution, and the first years of American government. The final part speaks to key issues that divided Americans in the nineteenth century, including market revolution, slavery, western expansion, and ideas of freedom and democracy after the Civil War.

With accessible introductions to each primary source and insightful questions to guide students' reading, Empire, Capitalism, and Democracy is an ideal collection for foundational courses in U.S. history.
