This text redresses several inadequacies typical of other 20th-century U.S. history texts with an introductory chapter that covers Reconstruction through the 1900s, providing valuable context and background for students. Coverage throughout the text is balanced chronologically, regionally, and culturally. The effects of multiculturalism and immigration on U.S. society, and the conflicting traditions of each, are discussed.
