The American Record Since 1941: Images of The Nations Past
By Graebner, William and Swansinger, Jacqueline
THE AMERICAN RECORD: SINCE 1941 combines secondary essays and primary sources, including over 75 illustrations. The reader includes the familiar topics that have long been the staple of courses in the United States since 1945. It also contains some topics and approaches that have not been so thoroughly covered in other readers: multicultural America; the Age of Anxiety in the 1940's; Family Politics. Unlike existing readers, THE AMERICAN RECORD recognizes that culture is an integral part of the American past. This reader is based on the very successful approach to studying and teaching history worked out in several editions of Graebner, THE AMERICAN RECORD: IMAGES OF THE NATIONS PAST (2 volumes).
