This American-history survey imparts the cultural and ethnic diversity that characterizes US heritage. It weaves together the complex interaction of social and political forces that have shaped the United States, and documents the slow, contradictory, often painful struggles and triumphs within and between communities which fuelled the transfomation from a loose connection of localities and regions into one diverse region. There are chapters on slavery, the Colonial Period, the Civil Rights Movement and the Indian Peoples and their development. Pedagogical aids include photographs, maps, timelines and annotated suggested readings.
