Expertly steering readers through the often tumultuous and exhilarating history of the United States, from its early modern Native American roots to twenty-first-century neoliberalism and the shifting political climate of the past decade, this highly readable textbook provides a compelling overview of American development over the last five centuries.
This book avoids either celebratory or condemnatory rhetoric to present a critical examination of domestic America and its interaction with the rest of the world. Balancing coverage of political, social, cultural, and economic history, each chapter also includes a wealth of features to facilitate learning:
- Timelines situating key events in their wider chronology
- Lists of topics covered within each chapter for easy reference
- Concept boxes discussing selected issues in more detail
- Historiography boxes exploring key debates
- Chapter summaries offering condensed outlines of the main themes of each chapter
- Further reading lists guiding readers to additional resources
- Maps and images bringing to life important events and figures from Americaâ€™s history
Clearly and engagingly written and positioning Americaâ€™s narrative within the wider global context, this textbook is particularly accessible for non-US students and is the perfect introduction for those new to US history.
This textbook is also supported by a companion website offering interactive content including a timeline, multiple-choice quizzes, and links to selected web resources.
