This reader acquaints students with the aspects of ordinary Americans by showing how the "big" and "important" events of the nation were reflected in the everyday lives of ordinary people. These readings highlight the diversity of Americans' experiences based on differences in race, ethnicity, and gender and the way in which those differences have at times led to conflict. Articles new to this edition reflect the latest scholarship on gender, Native Americans, and Hispanic Americans.
