Excellent supplement for understanding American history. Offering up-to-date coverage of America's social, political, and diplomatic past, this anthology of articles by nationally renowned scholars introduces students to the excitement of American history. With seven new selections, the seventh edition has been substantially revised to examine such topics as law and order in the American West, the role of women in armed forces, American antisemitism, and the rise of suburban culture centred around the mall.
