Description : "The history of America is a story of dynamic change, of a nation and its people moulded by different economic, social, political, and philosophical forces. In this book you will examine American history through the lens of one guiding concept: The United States is a nation shaped by ideas. America has always been a country defined not just by its borders oo the background of its people, but by the powerful ideas. Among the ideas that have guided America's development are liberty, democracy, equality, and opportunity. You will find this guiding concept in all aspects of American history and identity -- in technology and the arts; in the stories of immigrants and the treatment of different racial, social, and religious groups; in the push toward the frontier, wherever it may be found; and in America's interactions with Canada and the wider world. Above all, the United States is a modern state that has been profoundly shaped by its past. To fully comprehend the nation and its people, you must begin by examining its history. The features of American History open windows onto significant events, movements, people, and texts, define the dimensions of historical inquiry, and allow you to assess your understanding of the material"--Page x.
Description : Contrary to conventional wisdom, no area of study is outdated more quickly than history, and no time has been more turbulent for the discipline than our own. This classic point/counterpoint reader in American history, now in a completely revised and updated seventh edition, takes note of history's impermanence, giving voice to the new without disposing of the old. In ten lively chapters, essays by the editors introduce dialectical readings by distin-guished historians on topics from the Puritans through Reconstruction. The essays and readings address history's timeless questions: "The American Revolution: Social or Ideological?," "The Constitution: Conflict or Consensus?," and "Slave Culture: African or American?" New readings are included on African Americans, women, and immigrants. In the fray of debate, eminent historians from Perry Miller and Allan Nevins to Eric Foner, Gordon Wood, and Carol Sheriff struggle to interpret the past. The editors' essays moderate these passionate arguments and offer a clear, distanced vision of the changing character of history. They explain how history has usually been viewed through the lens of the present and demonstrate with sparkling historiography that the discipline is as contemporary as the headlines of today, as vital as the problems of tomorrow.
