The Shaping of North America, which begins the projected four volume history of the United States, (completed) looks keenly at Europe's age of exploration, because of its later influence in the New World, before moving onto the actual colonisation of North America. He traces the European rivalries and jealousies that persisted in the New World and points up the painful patterns of Indian-colonial relations brought on by the incredibly arrogant assumption that the Indians had no right at all to the land they lived on.
