This text's clear and engaging narrative balances political, social and cultural history within a clear chronological framework. The Fifth Edition features a thorough revision of the narrative, a complete redesign of the book, and an enhanced art program.

Throughout the text the authors explore the enduring vision of the American people, a vision they describe as "a shared determination to live up to the values that give meaning to America." Each chapter has been revised to incorporate the most up-to-date scholarship, with special emphasis placed on technology, public health, disease, and medicine.

  • New! "Technology and Culture" boxed features explore the development of new technologies--such as the invention of indoor plumbing and the birth control pill--and the impact of these technologies on American culture. The features also examine the impact of new technologies on everyday life and historical trends in the United States.
  • New! The Fifth Edition includes an increased emphasis on the crucial role of science, technology, medicine, and public health in American history.
  • New! The new edition includes up-to-date scholarship on the experiences of women, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, African Americans, and Native Americans in the United States.
  • New! Chapter 32 presents an integrated narrative and preliminary assessment of recent events from1996 to the present.
  • New! The text features a new chapter that consolidates all late-19th century material, examining how industrialization, urbanization, and immigration transformed everyday life, sharpened racial and ethnic divisions, and made Americans more conscious of social class.
  • New! Material on the Depression and New Deal is now covered in one chapter.
  • New! Key developments in the struggle for black equality and the Vietnam War are covered in separate, comprehensive narratives.
  • Dramatic chapter-opening vignettes draw the student into the chapter and present the chapter's main themes.
