This detailed primary source reader focuses on political, diplomatic, and social history, presenting documents that include travel literature, religious sermons, newspaper articles, court testimony, and diary entries. An ideal companion for the Thirteenth Edition of The American Pageant, the text can be used with any U.S. history survey text. All chapters are organized and edited to correspond with the content and organization of The American Pageant, 13/e. New! Material has been added in Volume I on diplomacy, the role of southern blacks in the Civil War, and foreign involvement in Latin America and Asia. New! Volume II offers new material on immigration in the 1920s and women in post-World War II, in addition to an entirely new Chapter 41 on the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations. Each chapter begins with a brief author prologue that provides students with background information before they encounter the sources. Each document is prefaced by a brief author explanation that includes "Focus Questions," which help direct students' reading.
