Book review

The idea of discovery has frequently shaped the way Americans think about
        themselves and their history. The process neither began nor ended with
        Columbus. As the contributors here make clear, many forgotten discoveries---of
        language, self, and nature, for example---have been a part of our national
        experience. These essays also suggest that discoveries made by many neglected
        groups and individuals---among them industrial workers, slaves, native
        Americans, and Asian immigrants---can be recalled to construct fresh versions
        of American history and to introduce a more inclusive vision of the past.
