Summary

Retracing the Pastis an engaging collection of both primary and secondary sources that emphasizes social history and cultural diversity. The anthology leads students to consider the role of women, ethnic/racial groups, and laboring Americans in weaving the nation's social fabric, and allows them to explore life at the individual and community level. It also introduces students to individuals and groups who made a critical difference in shaping American history. This edition extends its reach to cover the question of diversity more fully, incorporating it into the political and social history of the United States.
