Interpretations of American History, 6th ed, vol. 1

To 1877

About The Book

In its sixth edition this provocative, uniquely interpretive approach to the study of American history reflects the most recent significant historical scholarship and thought with numerous new contributors.

From the Puritans to 1877, ten lively chapters provides students with a spectrum of divergent historical viewpoints on the main social, political, and economic trends that have shaped America’s development over nearly two and a half centuries.

Acknowledging the dynamic and malleable quality of our national historical experience, Grob and Billias reveal how succeeding generations of Americans continually rewrite the story of the past in light of evolving ideas, attitudes, and assumptions.
