Philip Jenkins explores the central developments in American history from the fifteenth century to the present day. This highly
readable and authoritative account discusses the political, social, cultural and economic events that have shaped the history of the United States. The text covers key elements of this history such as the civil rights movement, the events of pre- and post-9/11, and the Iraq war.

For this new edition, Jenkins brings the story right up to date with discussions of:

the 2008 presidential election, Obama's victory and presidency
the global economic crisis and the conditions that gave rise to it
key environmental and gay rights issues
recent US debates over war and the economy.

A History of the United States provides a foundation for the study of American society, thought and culture. It is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the evolution of this remarkable nation.
