Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A combination of two volumes, also available separately, the first covering through Reconstruction. A conventional pre- postmodern account of US history for high-school students or undergraduates who do not intend to major in history. Includes drawings and photographs, most black-and-white; color charts, graphs, maps, and chronologies appropriate to the page; a glossary without pronunciation; and physical, television, and internet sites as well as print references. Extends to the 1994 election. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Booknews
Covering colonization to reconstruction, volume one combines political and social history to fit the experience of particular groups into the broader perspective of the American past. A principle theme is the emergence of distinctively American ideals and the way the conflict between those ideals and reality has shaped the nation's development. The chronological presentation emphasizes geographical literacy, coverage of South and West; a balanced overview that tackles controversial issues; and the importance of religion in American society.

Preface:

PREFACE

The journey that led us to The American Journey began in the classroom with our students. We wrote this book for them and we kept their needs foremost as we set about preparing this second edition.

Over the years we have subjected our students to many American history books—including the first edition of this one—and they have let us know what they liked and disliked, what they found difficult and what they grasped easily, what they skipped and what they devoured. Most important, they have told us what connects history to their own experience and brings it alive.

Our goal is to make American history accessible to students. The key to that goal—the core of the book—is a strong clear narrative. American history is a compelling story and we seek to tell it in an engaging, forthright way. But we also provide students with an abundance of tools—including outlines, key topics lists, chronologies, overview tables, highlighted key terms, review questions, and hundreds of maps, graphs, and illustrations—to help them absorb that story and put it in context. We introduce them to the concerns of the participants in history with primary source documents. And, in a new feature called "America's Journey: From Then to Now," we connect events and issues from the past to the concerns of the present.

But if we wrote this book to appeal to our students, we also wrote it to engage their minds. We wanted to avoid academic trendiness, particularly the restricting categories that have divided the discipline of history over the last twenty years or so. We believe that the distinctions involved in thedebates about multiculturalism and identity, between social and political history, between the history of the common people and the history of the elite, are unnecessarily confusing.

What we seek is integration—to combine political and social history, to fit the experience of particular groups into the broader perspective of the American past, to give voice to minor and major players alike because of their role in the story we have to tell.

Approach

In telling our story, we had some definite ideas about what we might include and emphasize that other texts do not—information we felt that the current and next generations of students will need to know about our past to function best in a new society.

CHRONOLOGICAL ORGANIZATION A strong chronological backbone supports the book. We have found that the jumping back and forth in time characteristic of some American history textbooks confuses students. They abhor dates but need to know the sequence of events in history. A chronological presentation is the best way to be sure they do.

GEOGRAPHICAL LITERACY We also want students to be geographically literate. We expect them not only to know what happened in American history, but where it happened as well. Physical locations and spatial relationships were often important in shaping historical events. The abundant maps in The American Journey—all numbered and called out in the text—are an integral part of our story.

COVERAGE OF THE SOUTH AND WEST The South and the West play significant roles in this text. American history is too often written from a Northeastern perspective, at least when it comes to discussing cities, economic development, and reform. But not only were the South and West developing in their own ways throughout American history, they were and remain important keys to the emerging character of the nation as a whole.

POINT OF VIEW The American Journey presents a balanced overview of the American past. But "balanced" does not mean bland. We do not shy away from definite positions on controversial issues, such as the nature of early contacts between Native Americans and Europeans, why the political crisis of the 1850s ended in a bloody Civil War, and how Populism and its followers fit into the American political spectrum. If students and instructors disagree, that's great; discussion and dissent are important catalysts for understanding and learning.

RELIGION Nor do we shy away from some topics that play relatively minor roles in other texts, like religion. Historians are often uncomfortable writing about religion and tend to slight its influence. This text stresses the importance of religion in American society both as a source of strength and a reflection of some its more troubling aspects.

Historians mostly write for each other. That's too bad. We need to reach out and expand our audience. An American history text is a good place to start. Our students are not only our future historians, but more important, our future. Let their American journey begin.

Features of the Text

The American Journey includes an array of features and pedagogical tools designed to make American history accessible to students.

  • The Student Tool Kit that follows this preface helps students get the most out of the text and its features. It introduces students to key conventions of historical writing and it explains how to read maps, graphs, and tables.
  • A new feature, America's Journey: From Then to Now, relates important issues and events in each chapter to the issues and events of today, letting students see the relevance of history to their lives. Examples include "The American Revolution and the Teaching of American History" (Chapter 6), "From the Eaton Affair to Monicagate" (Chapter 10), "The Confederate Battle Flag" (Chapter 19), and "The Culture Wars" (Chapter 26).
  • An Outline and Key Topics list give students a succinct overview of each chapter.
  • Each chapter begins with an engaging opening story that highlights important themes.
  • The American Views box in each chapter contains a relevant primary source document. Taken from letters, diaries, newspapers, government papers, and other sources, these bring the people of the past and their concerns vividly alive. An introduction and prereading questions relate the documents to the text and direct students' attention to important issues.
  • Overview Tables in each chapter summarize complex issues.
  • Chapter chronologies help students build a framework of key events.
  • Key Terms are highlighted within each chapter and defined in an end-of-book Glossary.
  • Chapter Review Questions help students review the material in a chapter and relate it to broader themes.
  • A list of Key Readings and Additional Sources at the end of each chapter directs interested students to further information about the subject of the chapter.
  • Where To Learn More sections describe important historical sites students can visit to gain a deeper understanding of the events discussed in the chapter.
  • Abundant maps, charts, and graphs help students understand important events and trends. The topographical detail in many of the maps helps students understand the influence of geography on history.
  • Illustrations and photographs—tied to the text with detailed captions—provide a visual dimension to history.
