9780132299657: These United States: The Questions of Our Past, Concise Edition, Combined (chapters 1-31) (3rd Edition)

Using a thematic approach, this concise survey explores the many and varied threads of American history-social, intellectual, cultural, political, diplomatic, economic, and military-from the arrival of the first native American inhabitants thousand of years ago throught the crisis following the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, 2001.  

 

Irwin Unger, a Pulitzer Prize winning author, wrote this book after discovering from his own experiences teaching American History at the University of California at Davis and at NYU, that a thematic approach was much more interesting to students than a purely descriptive one.

From the Publisher:

A survey of US History from Pre-Columbian times to the present. Takes a "questioning approach", which focuses student attention to large historiographical questions in each chapter. New edition adds material on the Pre-Columbian period and expands colonial coverage; expands coverage of Indian peoples, ecology and environment, economic history. Volume II re-interprets cold war and final chapter focuses on end of cold war and diversity.

From the Back Cover:

Written by a Pulitzer Prize winning author, this concise survey explores the many and varied threads of American history—social, intellectual, cultural, political, diplomatic, economic, and military—from the arrival of the first native American inhabitants thousands of years ago to the crisis following the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, 2001. Inclusive of all the diverse groups that are and have been part of the American fabric, it shows how the story of America is a human story revealing the imperfections, as well as the triumphs of human endeavor and the human spirit. Using a unique inquiry approach, each chapter is built around a specific question or theme designed to challenge students to consider the complexity of America's past.
