About the Book
This is a U.S. history text book for survey courses. As volume two, it covers the period from Reconstruction (1876) to the present.

Beginning college students who are not history majors commonly say that history textbooks are uninteresting. As an intentionally brief version, this text provides the basic substance of the American story, while allowing the teacher to assign a number of other supplemental readings of more fascinating, best selling, and cheaper books to entice students into enjoying the experience of earning their required class credits. Since the survey course is probably the only history class many students ever take, this may be the best way to get the material to "stick."

This text gives the framework and puts it all in context, and leaves the reader with time to add to it with "fun" reading.
