Summary

This spirited narrative challenges students to think about the meaning of American history. Thoughtful inclusion of the lives of everyday people, cultural diversity, work, and popular culture preserves the text's basic approach to American history as a story of all the American people.The Seventh Edition maintains the emphasis on the unique social history of the United States and engages students through cutting-edge research and scholarship. New content includes expanded coverage of modern history (post-1945) with discussion of foreign relations, gender analysis, and race and racial relations.Chapter-based "Links to the World" connect US history to global events and provide web links for further research while end-of-chapter "Legacies for a People and a Nation" focus on meaningful events or movements relevant to present-day issues or controversies.
