Abstract:

Introduction: American colonial history, especially when studied from the institutional standpoint, is not limited or narrow in its bearings. Is outlook is broad, and the issues with which it is connected affect deeply the history of the world at large. Viewed in one connection, it is the record of the beginnings of English-American institutions. Looked at from another point of view, it fills an important place in the history of British colonization. It leads outward in two directions, toward the history of the greatest of federal republics, and toward the later and freer development of the greatest of commercial empires. If the colonial and the imperial forces which were operating can be fully traced and clearly revealed, the significance of the period in its two-fold connection will be made apparent.
