Summary: American Mosaic helps students expand their historical awareness and critical-thinking skills while they study the development of literary, political, and cultural voices within the United States. A chronological framework allows students to examine key events in the history of ethnic groups in the U.S., with each chapter centering on a significant historical period for the group. The readings within each chapter illustrate how each group has participated in the deve morelopment and transformation of American culture.

  • New! Thirty-one new selections, drawn from a wide range of sources, provide differing viewpoints on provocative issues such as Puerto Rican statehood and the Makaw whaling controversy. The new selections draw on sources such as first-person narrative, journalism, oratory, fiction, and poetry.
  • New!An introductory chapter, ''Points of Entry, Points of Departure,'' provides a foundation for multi-ethnic studies and the multicultural debate through a collection of essays that explore the meanings of several important terms such as ''melting pot'' and ''cultural pluralism.''
  • Chapter introductions set the historical context and provide starting points for discussion, while excerpts from legal documents open each chapter and suggest ways the dominant culture responded to each ethnic group.
  • Headnotes provide background information.
  • Pre-reading and post-reading questions foster critical thinking and provide opportunities for group work and close reading.
  • Connecting questions end each chapter and ask students to compare selections.
  • Suggestions for further research and bibliographies for further reading encourage students to continue exploring issues. less
