9780765634849: The American Century: A History of the United States Since the 1890s

The new edition of this classic text on modern U.S. history brings the story of contemporary America into the second decade of the twenty-first century with new coverage of the Obama presidency and the 2012 elections. Written by three highly respected scholars, the book seamlessly blends political, social, cultural, intellectual, and economic themes into an authoritative and readable account of our increasingly complex national story. The seventh edition retains its affordability and conciseness while continuing to add the most recent scholarship. Each chapter contains a special feature section devoted to cultural topics including the arts and architecture, sports and recreation, technology and education. Adding to the readers' learning experience is the addition of web links to each of these features, providing numerous complementary visual study tools. These links become live, and illustrations appear in full color, in the ebook edition.

An American Century instructor site provides instructors who adopt the book with high interest features--illustrations, photos, maps, quizzes, an elaboration of key themes in the book, PowerPoint presentations, and lecture launchers on topics including the Versailles Conference, the "Military-Industrial Complex" Speech by Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Tet Offensive, and the prospects for a Second American Century. In addition, students have free access to a multimedia primary source archive of materials carefully selected to support the themes of each chapter.

Review:

 "It is written in a lively and edifying manner that will engross both history and non-history majors. The text primarily follows a chronological format, making it easy to assign specific chapters or sections for use as supplemental readings in classes dealing with more specific subjects. The text can also be used as the primary textbook in both one and two semester courses dealing with 20th Century American history. One of the features that makes this text so engaging for students is that the writers have balanced the historical, political, and economic facts with cultural, intellectual, and social insights that help to not only bring the subject matter to life, but also to make the material more relevant to modern students. The organization of the material makes it easy for instructors to customize its use to meet their classes' unique requirements and the wealth of supplemental material that is available will enhance the students' learning experience." ―History in Review
