From the American Revolution in the 18th century to the Iraq War in the 21st century, wars have had a profound impact on U.S. history. Each of the 12 major conflicts since 1775 has generated impassioned debate on vital issues, from independence, liberty, and emancipation to national security, imperialism, and democracy. These debates and controversies have transformed both American society and international relations.

American Wars focuses on one overarching controversy underlying each war in which Americans have fought, enabling students to understand the fundamental forces and disputes that have shaped these conflicts and their impact on the nation. This brand-new volume examines controversies sparked by the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War, and the Iraq War. American Wars features black-and-white illustrations, maps, chronologies, primary sources, and much more to get students interested in this fascinating topic.

From the Back Cover:

These brand-new volumes answer any questions high school and college students may have on debates in this country and how they were resolved. Designed to spark discussion, these new resources are essential for anyone interested in these topics and how they have affected America.

Each volume features black-and-white illustrations, maps, chronologies, primary sources, and much more to get students interested in these fascinating topics.

The new Issues and Controversies in American History series focuses on the conflicts and questions Americans have confronted and how they were eventually resolved. Each volume focuses on a single topic and includes 10–12 stand-alone chapters on specific controversies. Each chapter opens with a highlight box stating the issue and describing the conflict, followed by a narrative essay providing historical background. An exposition of the two competing sides is also included, with each side supported by primary sources (6–10 per chapter). The final outcome is also examined, and a counterfactual "what if" section suggests what could have happened had Americans chosen differently. Designed to foster debate and spark discussion, this series shows students that history is not inevitable but based on the actions and decisions that people make.
