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 of people and of the nation and emphasizing that American history has never been the preserve of any particular region. Traditional turning points and watershed events are integrated with the stories of the nation's many diverse communities. The text's trademark continental approach has been expanded to incorporate a greater hemispheric perspective, while a new community and memory feature analyzes the roleand the conflictsof historical memory in shaping communities' understanding of the past.
