In this second and revised edition of The Unfinished Nation, Alan Brinkley provides a clear account of the American chronicle that strikes a balance between the new diversity in scholarship and the narrative unity that any general history must have. Brinkley makes plain that one can incorporate the rich and varied experiences of America's many cultures into a coherent and compelling account and at the same time retain a sense of what ties Americans together as members of an often troubled but remarkably successful nation. The revised edition pays particular attention to fresh scholarship on the American West, on Hispanic Americans, and on Asian Americans. There is a new section on the rise of the contemporary political right, and an enlargement of coverage of the Vietnam War.
