|By David Hackett Fischer
The author traces key aspects of American
culture, including certain regional variations,
to pre-1800 immigrants from the British Isles.
He focuses on four waves of immigrants, each
from a different region or social stratum
in Britain, and shows how they transplanted
their ways to America and how these ways
persist today. This study in history and
anthropology has provoked much discussion
since its initial publication in 1991. It
is both highly readable and engrossing.
