From the Back Cover

Constructing the American Past
Volume I Sixth Edition
By Elliott J. Gorn, Randy Roberts, Terry D. Bilhartz

Challenge your students to become historians with the hands-on history of letters, articles, journalistic sources, photographs and posters.

Constructing the American Past achieves a level of inclusion and depth rarely found in other source books. Each chapter focuses on a particular problem or moment in American history, providing students with several different sources and points of view. An array of written sources, photographs, posters and maps asks students to analyze the visual sources of American history. By exposing students to these “conversations” of primary sources, the building blocks of history, Constructing the American Past fosters a solid foundation and invites its readers to analyze and interpret American events as historians do.

New to the Sixth Edition

  • NEW! Chapter 9 on Andrew Jackson’s America explores the achievements of Jackson’s Presidency and how the “era of the common man” appeared to American Indians, Mexican-Americans, and African-Americans.
  • NEW! Increased coverage of women and minorities, as well as new material on the foundations of American legal and constitutional liberties. Controversial subjects like the Dred Scott decision and the role of women in the West have been expanded.
  • More visual sources appear throughout the volume, including a diverse selection of poetry and newspaper advertisements.
  • All of the “Additional Readings” sections have been updated to include the most recent scholarship.
