A People & A Nation: A History of the United States

by Carol Sheriff David M. Katzman Mary Beth Norton

Developed to meet the demand for a low-cost, high-quality history book, this text is an economically priced version of A People and a Nation, 7/e (copy;2005). The Dolphin Edition offers readers the complete text while limiting the number of photos and maps. All volumes feature a paperback, two-color format that appeals to those seeking a comprehensive, trade-sized history text. Like its hardcover counterpart, the Dolphin Edition preserves the text's basic approach to American history as the story of all Americans. The text is known for its emphasis on social history, well-respected author team, attention to race and racial identity, and balanced and engaging narrative. Significant revisions to the Seventh Edition of A People and a Nation are reflected in the Dolphin Edition. Co-authors Fredrik Logevall and Beth Bailey bring new scholarship on international relations and American culture to Volume II. Both authors contribute significant content on diversity, environmental issues, and other matters specific to the western United States. Volume II has been reorganized-with particular attention to Chapters 30-33-so that world and domestic events are treated in the same chapter. For example, coverage of the Vietnam War and protests against it are now addressed in Chapter 30. This reorganization allows for a more chronologically organized text and the integration of new scholarship. Chapter-based Links to the World connect American history to global events and provide web links for further research on topics such as international treaties and the AIDS epidemic. All chapters have been thoroughly updated to incorporate cutting-edge scholarship and recent events. For available instructor and student supplements, see catalog entry for Norton et al. , A People and a Nation, Seventh Edition.

Several popular features have been retained and updated, including "Legacies for a People and a Nation" and chapter-opening vignettes. A new "Links to the World" feature connects U.S. history to global events and provides Web links for further research on topics such as international piracy, baseball in Japan, OPEC, and AIDS.
