Summary: For introductory-level American History Courses.

This major revision of a pathbreaking text weaves together the complex interaction of social, political, and historical forces that have shaped the United States and from which "the American people" have evolved by telling stories and emphasizing that American history has never been the preserve of any particular region. The text's trademark "continental" approach has been refined to inco ...show morerporate a greater hemispheric perspective, while a new community and memory feature analyzes the role--and the conflicts--of historical memory in shaping communities' understanding of the past.

Features

  • NEW--Transnational perspective.
    • Provides closer and more detailed examination of the dynamic relationship between the United States and Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, and the Pacific, allowing students to see the hemispheric context that has shaped American history.
  • NEW--Community and Memory essays.
    • Ten chapters (chs. 1, 4, 6, 9, 14, 19, 21, 25, 28, 31) end with a special essay that looks at how various American communities are struggling with the powerful role of historical memory in forming their understanding of past events. Linked directly to the corresponding American community vignettes, community and memory essays examine such topics as conflicts over Indian burial grounds, controversies surrounding the Alamo, and the way in which Americans are putting the World Trade Center bombing into historical perspective.
  • NEW--Improved organization.
    • Combines Chapters 30 and 31 to examine the period from 1974 to 1989. An all-new final chapter, entitled "Toward a Transnational America," looks at developments since 1989.
  • NEW--Latest Scholarship.
    • Incorporates the latest research on the South, popular culture, science and technology, and the Cold War.
  • NEW--On the Web--Includes relevant, screened websites for each chapter and features two interactive maps.
    • Helps students better grasp the geographical, conceptual, and chronological framework for understanding key events and trends in American history.
  • NEW--Special biographies supplement.
