Designed to encourage critical thinking about history, the Major Problems in American History series introduces students to both primary sources and analytical essays on important topics in U.S. history. This text serves as the primary anthology, even the textbook, for the course, covering the subject's entire chronological span. With nearly 50% new documents, the Second Edition places greater emphasis on diplomacy and foreign affairs, popular culture, religion, and the history of national and group identities. Documents in each chapter identify key issues and capture the passionate spirit and conviction of the historical actors. The essay selections highlight classic and current scholarship on the social and cultural history of the early republic.

    This is a fine text to remind one of how tough, and politically tricky, it was getting the US established as a country, constitution, states rights, etc. etc., including the pros and cons debated over slavery, the economy, dealing with other nations, the impact of the Louisiana Purchase, the connection between slavery and the Monroe Doctrine, the rise of evangelism, the market revolution, the issues regarding banks, tariffs, the Indians, the West, farmlands, . . . it all seems endless, culminating in whether or not the Union would break up . . . all in all a good read, except for the print font, much too small, causing a takeaway from enjoying the book for what it's worth new, as it's much too expensive for the casual reader.

    If you already have basic knowledge of a given era or topic in American history, a great way to augment your understanding of that era or topic is to read the corresponding Major Problems in American History volume.These books are designed as upper-level college textbooks and have the readers examine original source documents, read essays written by professional historians, consider various viewpoints on the issues raised, and then draw their own conclusions.The 1992 version of the volume on the republic's early decades covers the time period from 1787 to 1848 and examines a wide sweep of issues such as the Constitution, politics, economic downturns, westward settlement, slavery, territorial expansion, capitalism, wars, social trends, and gender and racial issues.Two of the documents, one written in 1829 and the other in 1841, read as though they could have been written today--the former lays out, with a few exceptions, what today's liberals believe about income equality levels and equality of result, and the latter takes the position that today's conservatives support, one emphasizing a more freewheeling system based on equality of opportunity.Books in the Major Problems series do require much of the reader, but they reward the effort--they give the reader a much more complete picture of what life was like when the events happened than one gets from a more general history textbook.

    This was needed for a collegiate class I was enrolled in and it was in great condition and served me well

    Another bad joke foisted on the already poverty stricken American college student. These texts, no matter how well written are not worth the outrageous prices they charge to our young.
