This text travels from the Native American forebears to the economic conflicts of the Reagan administration. Its distinguished authors embrace the full range of the American experience—economic, and social, literary and spiritual, political and military.
In the engaging style that has made this work so well received, the authors offer fresh analyses on many subjects. These include the American party system, the Cold War, our relations with China, and much more. Major social, political, and economic policies and trends that have affected women and minority groups are recorded in detail. A Concise History of the American Republic, Second Edition is also illustrated with 30 maps and over 250 paintings, cartoons, and photographs.
