    What's New

    • Updates to the Second Edition include expansion of Caribbean/Atlantic history and the Spanish colonial experience; increased coverage of Native American history; increased coverage of the role of colonial women leading up to the Revolution and social history throughout the Revolutionary War period; more on the racial politics of the Progressives; and increased coverage of major periods of immigration and the Civil Rights movement.
    • "What Else Was Happening?" boxes at the end of the chapters now have an increased focus on international events. Topics include: when other nations throughout the world abolished slavery; how the ideas of the revolution in the U.S. spread to other parts of the world; aspects of western relations with Asia as early as the 18th century; independence movements throughout Latin America in the 19th century; various colonial wars and the decolonization of Africa; universal health care and systems of social welfare; the Russo-Japanese War; formation of the USSR; and Japan/China conflict.
    • More "The Reasons Why..." boxes have been added throughout the text--there's now at least one in every chapter. New topics include why the states ratified the Constitution (Chapter 7), why there was an expansion of westward migration in the 1840s (Chapter 13), why so many Americans favored isolationism before World War II (Chapter 24), and why the Vietnam War was so divisive (Chapter 26).
    • Chapters 27 through 30 have been substantially revised and reorganized to provide a more balanced discussion of the major events from the 1970s to the present.
    • "What do you think?" opening polls have been updated in every chapter to make them more thought-provoking for students.

    Efficacy and Outcomes

    Reviews

    "While I could provide specific student learning data that shows how much better students learned using HIST as opposed to several other texts, their course evaluation comments were enough. After all, how many students ever say, 'I loved the textbook'?"
    — Carey Roberts, Arkansas Tech University
    "The convenience of having those tear out cards is like icing on the proverbial cake. As I prepare exams, I look at the pull-out and my class notes and it really helps me craft questions that ask the students to speak to the learning outcomes and display their understanding of the major facts. It helps me to keep the appropriate organization in mind. It also reminds me to include the e-resources as I prep for exams as the links are all listed right there."
    — Theresa (Terry) Davis, Mount Union College
