9780060447427: The American people: Creating a nation and a society

Providing students with a thought-provoking account of America’s past, The American People examines how American society assumed its present shape and developed its present forms of government.

 

Emphasizing the interaction of ordinary Americans with extraordinary events, the text combines the discussion of political events with analysis of their impact on social and economic life. The comprehensive narrative encompasses description of the lives and experiences of Americans of all national origins and cultural backgrounds, at all class levels of society, and in all regions of the country. The thoughtful analysis seeks the connections among the political, social, economic, technological, and cultural factors that have shaped and reshaped American society over four centuries.
