Summary: 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

  • 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.
