This diverse and distinctive collection of secondary sources, written by a variety of authors, emphasizes social and cultural history. Each article illuminates the complexity and richness of the nation's past by focusing on the people themselves-- how they coped with, adjusted to, or rebelled against America. The readings examine people as they worked and played, fought and loved, lived and died.
