More About This Textbook

Overview

Almost every college history instructor has heard one of the following from students: "Why should I study history, it is so boring" or "History is just about old dead people that I don't have anything in common with." THe students refect the comment made in Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey that they read history only a little because "...it tells me little that does not either vex or weary me. The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars and pestilences, and in every page; the men all so good for nothing, and hardly any women at all." Historians today write accurately, with the intent to present a story that both informs and entertains. But to reach out to students, to take their minds beyons entertainment, to the realm of critical thinking that is necessary for good citizens in a democracy, requires more than clear prose.

Based on our combined sixty-plus years of teaching experience, we created We Are the American People: Our Nation's History Through Its Documents to supplement the usual text and lectures in a United States history survey course. The survey course, in fact any good United States history course, should provide insights and basic background on our historic past, encourage further exploration by students, and promote critical thinking. Too often the survey fails to accomplish any of these goals, because instructors are forced to use a panoramic approach. Forced to sprint across hundreds of years in two, sixteen-week courses professors paint a picture of our past with broad strokes, seldom having time for detailed work.

As attempts to remedy this instructors assign student book critiques, create special in-class projects and group discussions, and use handouts of articles or primary documents. We believe that using primary documents is one of the best ways to do this: it's even essential. We also believe that this new primary documents reader provides an excellent way to incorporate documents into your classes.
