What's New

  • A PEOPLE AND A NATION, Brief Tenth Edition, offers the most complete revision in the text's history. The number of chapters has been reduced 15 in Volume 2, making the text easier to assign in a typical semester. Rather than simply combining sections into fewer chapters, the authors honed the narrative with an eye to reducing excessive detail, thereby sharpening and more clearly emphasizing key themes.
  • Chapter 29, “Into the Global Millennium: America Since 1992,” includes new material on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the presidential election of 2012, the end of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy, the war in Afghanistan, and the death of Osama bin Laden.
  • In this revision, the author team has recommitted to the founding principles of the book: to tell the story of America as both a people and a nation, discussing the relationship between the two. In addition to going beyond the political history of the United States to encompass the diversity of America's people, the book has integrated new themes and focuses over the years that reflect the evolution of historical questions as well as the scholarship and insights of new authors.
