ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "United States of America: A History," by Henry Bamford Parkes. It is doubtful if any recent work surveying the whole course of American history is quite so adequate and comprehensive as the "United States of America." The reason why it is so satisfying is that in every period from Colonial pre-history to the modern day he traces not only the political history in its domestic and foreign aspects, but gives a very illuminating account of the manners and morals of the religious development, of literature, philosophy, science, and the arts.
