Meet the people who made history every day.
Rather than focusing on diplomatic or political histroy, this successful two-volumn reader for U.S. history survey courses chronicles the way ordinary people lived on a day-to-day basis. Unlike most survey texts, it does not merely consider the most powerful and famous historical figures and well-known events.
The text underscores the varied range of Americans' experiences, highlights racial, ethnic, and gender differences, and points to diversity as a common source of conflict.
