Constructing the American Past Volume II 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 Pastachieves 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 10 on World War IIexplores how Americans fought the “good war” for freedom, but how some Americans-specifically of Japanese, Mexican or African ancestry-found that the good war left a legacy of problems. NEW!Chapter 11 on the Cold Warhas been expanded to include poet Thomas McGrath’s statement to the House Un-American Activities Committee. NEW!Chapter 14 now includes Dennis Hayes’s inaugural Earth Day speech. More visual sourcesappear 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.
