Overview

The Enduring Vision: A History of the American People, Volume II: Since 1865 / Edition 8

THE ENDURING VISION's engaging narrative integrates political, social, and cultural history within a chronological framework. Known for its focus on the environment and the land, the text is also praised for its innovative coverage of cultural history, public health and medicine, and the West—including Native American history. The eighth edition incorporates new scholarship throughout, includes a variety of new photos, and brings the discussion fully up to date with coverage of the 2012 presidential campaign. Based on the popularity of the "Going to the Source" feature, which was introduced in the previous edition, additional "Going to the Source" selections are offered online in the eighth edition.
