Summary

New to This Edition

  • The fourth edition offers a completely new four-color design and expanded illustration and mapping program.
  • "America in the World" features offer a global context and demonstrate how other histories are woven into that of the United States.
  • Each chapter opens with a new introduction and new timelines.
  • Many of the maps within the text now appear as interactive maps on the Online Learning Center, accompanied by related multiple-choice quizzes.
  • Marginal notes highlight key terms, events, and concepts as they appear within the narrative.
  • Expanded coverage focuses on the history of science and technology.
  • The first four chapters have been thoroughly revised to show the connections between the history of the British colonies and the larger, global context of migration and settlement, also known as the emergence of an "Atlantic World."
