9780077275617: Becoming America, Volume II: From Reconstruction

The way we once learned history is now history.

Developed for students and instructors of the twenty-first century, Becoming America excites learners by connecting history to their experience of contemporary life. You can’t travel back in time, but you can be transported, and Becoming America does so by expanding the traditional core of the U.S survey to include the most contemporary scholarship on cultural, technological, and environmental transformations. At the same time, the program transforms the student learning experience through innovative technology that is at the forefront of the digital revolution. As a result, the Becoming America program makes it easier for students to grasp both the distinctiveness and the familiarity of bygone eras, and to think in a historically focused way about the urgent questions of our times.

About the Author:

Rebecca McLennan is associate professor of history at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research focuses on America since 1607, with an emphasis on post-revolutionary U.S. legal, political, and cultural history. She received her PhD from Columbia University and was on the faculty of Harvard University before joining Berkeley's history department. She has taught a diverse range of undergraduate courses, including classes on American and global foodways and agriculture since 1491; modern consumer culture; land, law, and property; and crime and punishment from colonial times to the present. Rebecca has published widely in American history and is currently writing a cultural history of courts in the early republic. Her most recent book, The Crisis of Imprisonment: Protest, Politics, and the Making of the American Penal State, 1776-1941 (Cambridge University Press, 2008), won several major book awards, including the American Historical Association's Littleton-Griswold Prize for best book in U.S. legal history.

Review:

"At last! An American history for the 21st century that surpasses older texts in its appreciation of the latest trends in American history without sacrificing traditional approaches. The authors have wonderfully innovative means of illuminating the lives of both ordinary and extraordinary Americans and America's evolving society and culture." -- Howard P. Segal, University of Maine

"[Becoming America] is able to combine all that you want your students to cover in economic, politics, and foreign policy with a great connection between social history of the past and current themes in society." -- Manfred Silva, El Paso Community College

"This is an innovative text that offers a coherent, intelligent, and manageable survey of U.S. history. I think students will love it." -- Katherine Hijar, California State University, San Marcos

"Becoming America enthusiastically recounts the political, economic, military, and social history of the United States and has the ability to draw in students who may claim to have never enjoyed history. This might change their minds." -- Wyatt Moulds, Jones County Junior College

"The authors' approach is to think outside the box: Becoming America is written not for other historians but rather for students, in a way that shows them how to think as historians think." -- Stephen F. Lopez, San Jacinto College
