"How did that happen?" students wonder about their past. America’s History provides a clear explanation. Instructors rely on America’s History to help them teach that history matters — this means helping their students understand not only what happened, but also why. For the new, sixth edition, the authors took a hard look at all aspects of their text, considered what worked and what didn’t, and crafted a broad revision plan that demonstrates, once again, their unmatched commitment to America’s History. The hallmark of the revision is a thorough reconsideration of the post-1945 period that incorporates new scholarship and makes sense of the recent past, but America’s History, Sixth Edition offers much more. This includes additional narrative changes in both volumes, a new in-text feature program based on written and visual primary documents in every chapter, and a host of new and improved pedagogic features. With its clear exposition, insightful analysis and in-text sources, America’s History, gives instructors and students everything they need.

A secure old age, unemployment insurance, health benefits — these human needs of a modern industrial order were beyond the reach of urban liberals in the Progressive era. Reforming Politics Like the Mugwumps of the Gilded Age (see Chapter 19), progressive reformers attacked corrupt party rule, but more adeptly and aggressively. Indeed, what distinguished political reform after 1900 was that it was

conservatism. Even richer are the additions to Part Seven, “Entering a New Era: Conservatism, Globalization, Terrorism, 1980–2006,” especially in the treatment of social movements and the information technology revolution in Chapter 31, and a completely new post-2000 Chapter 32, which, unlike all the preceding chapters, relies not on secondary sources, but primarily on a reading of the contemporary press and the public record.
