This paper examines how "The Peopling of British North America" offers a critical synopsis of the patterns of immigration that occurred within the settled areas of North America over the span of multiple decades. It looks at how the work attempts to describe not only the migratory patterns of settlers, but also the effects that settlement and change had on the culture of early America.

Analysis of Text

From the Paper:

"Bailyn proposes many facts in his work. First and foremost, Bailyn assumes that the peopling of British North America was nothing more than an extension and expansion of "domestic mobility in the lands of the immigrants origins", suggesting to the reader that they interpret the habitation of the North American content within the context of domestic mobility patterns (Judd 1). Bailyn also asserts that the development of the North American continent introduced a new force in history that "permanently altered the traditional configuration" prominent for years among European settlers (Judd 1)."
