Engaging and provocative, it carefully documents the slow, contradictory — often painful — struggles and triumphs within and between communities which fueled our transformation from a loose collection of localities and regions into one diverse nation. Focused on the rich cultural and ethnic diversity that characterizes the United States' heritage, this book weaves together the complex interaction of social, political, and historical forces that have shaped the United States and from which “the American people” have evolved.About the Author:
