Long DescriptionThis fascinating book is the first volume in a projected cultural history of the United States, from the earliest English settlements to our own time. It is a history of American folkways as they have changed through time, and it argues a thesis about the importance for the United States of having been British in its cultural origins. While most people in the United States today have no British ancestors, they have assimilated regional cultures which were created by British colonists, even while preserving ethnic identities at the same time. In this sense, nearly all Americans are "Albion's Seed," no matter what their ethnicity may be. The concluding section of this remarkable book explores the ways that regional cultures have continued to dominate national politics from 1789 to 1988, and still help to shape attitudes toward education, government, gender, and violence, on which differences between American regions are greater than between European nations.

This is the first version of our app that is available to the public. This version is mostly an interface to our mobile web site with a few helpful tools layered over the top.

As we improve the app, we will be making it more powerful and more focused to give you more control and a better user experience.

For now the main features are easy access to the barcode scanner (your camera) and text searching.

Many more features are in the works including more actions than simple product lookups for your barcode scanner. But for now, we hope that this initial version adds some value and improves the user experience as you use the EAN Data that we have to offer.
