American History Nowcollects eighteen original historiographic essays that survey recent scholarship in American history and trace the shifting lines of interpretation and debate in the field. Building on the legacy of two previous editions ofThe New American History, this volume presents an entirely new group of contributors and a reconceptualized table of contents.
The new generation of historians showcased inAmerican History Nowhave asked new questions and developed new approaches to scholarship to revise the prevailing interpretations of the chronological periods from the Colonial era to the Reagan years. Covering the established subfields of women's history, African American history, and immigration history, the book also considers the history of capitalism, Native American history, environmental history, religious history, cultural history, and the history of "the United States in the world."
American History Nowprovides an indispensible summation of the state of the field for those interested in the study and teaching of the American past.
