9780199389339: American Horizons: U.S. History in a Global Context, Volume I: To 1877, with Sources

American Horizons, Second Edition, is the only U.S. History survey text that presents the traditional narrative in a global context. The authors use the frequent movement of people, goods, and ideas into, out of, and within America's borders as a framework. This unique approach provides a fully integrated global perspective that seamlessly contextualizes American events within the wider world. The authors, all acclaimed scholars in their specialties, use their individual strengths to provide students with a balanced and inclusive account of U.S. history.

Presented in two volumes for maximum flexibility, American Horizons, Second Edition, illustrates the relevance of U.S. history to American students by centering on the matrix of issues that dominate their lives. These touchstone themes include population movements and growth, the evolving definition of citizenship, cultural change and continuity, people's relationship to and impact upon the environment, political and ideological contests and their consequences, and Americans' five centuries of engagement with regional, national, and global institutions, forces, and events. In addition, this beautifully designed, full-color book features hundreds of photos and images and more than 100 maps.

Review:


"This is a very complete and comprehensive work, explaining in detail the factors and conditions that impact and have impacted America. American Horizons does an outstanding job of giving students a complete and balanced overview of American history."--Bill Mauzey, Metropolitan Community College


"For the past decade or so we have been trying to anchor the U.S. history survey in a more global perspective-this is exactly the purpose of this text. It provides an excellent platform for teaching American history in a global context, enabling students to understand that American history did not evolve in a vacuum, but was influenced by forces outside of the U.S."--Karen Miller, Oakland University


"American Horizons' obvious strength is the global context it provides, which is very useful in helping students understand that larger context. The graphics, maps, and tables seem especially well done, too; they are clear, easy to read, and relevant. I especially appreciate the chapter on migration, religion, and empires--it is a subject often quickly discussed or passed over entirely in survey texts."--Christopher Jones, College of William and Mary


"I'm particularly happy with the discussion of two aspects in the text: that of migration--one really gets a good idea of how many people came to the U.S. and how many international influences there have been on people--and the ongoing discussion in the early chapters of temperance (the global reach, the role of women, and the impact of prohibition)."--Chad Parker, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
