9780618994601: Making America: A History of the United States - Volume 2: Since 1865

Shaped with a clear political chronology, Making America reflects the variety of individual experiences and kaleidoscope of cultures that is American society. Careful to maintain its emphasis on the importance of social movements, immigrant society, and regional and political differences in American history, the Fifth Edition of Making America brings greater attention to global influences and America's role in the world. Making America serves the needs of instructors whose classrooms reflect the diversity of today's college students. The strongly chronological narrative, together with an integrated program of learning and teaching aids, makes the historical content vivid and comprehensible to students at all levels of preparedness.
