About

Overview

Primarily aimed at undergraduates, America In The World will answer the needs of students while satisfying the general reader's increasing curiosity about America's role on the world scene; the impact of U.S. policies not only nationally, on the domestic agenda, but globally; and the reactions of the world's nations to America's rise, 1776 to the present. The set includes key figures from John Adams and the Marquis de Lafayette to Bob Dylan and Barack Obama, and also covers organizations like IBM and the RAND Corporation, the American Colonization Society and the Red Cross, along with topics exploring social and cultural themes, such as Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West, Captain America, Americanization, Exceptionalism, and the Lost Generation. The emphasis on global perspectives brings fresh insights to such domestic topics as the Texas Republic, Wounded Knee, the Department of Homeland Security, and Martin Luther King, Jr. The entry on King, for example, answers the following questions: how did he develop and articulate a global vision of the struggle against colonialism and imperialism during his years of fight against segregation in America? What role did he play in the fight against Apartheid in South Africa? How was King influenced by the ideas of Mahatma Gandhi? Referred to in the academic world as “transnational history,” the content in our volumes introduces an increasingly popular approach to teaching US history in the context of the world at large.
