REVISED TO REFLECT THE WAY U.S. HISTORY IS TAUGHT TODAY: This revision includes new material covering Indigenous history in the U.S., and the legacies of imperialism, colonization, and slavery, to reflect today's school curriculum, perspective, and language. Even the name of the book - now U.S. HISTORY instead of AMERICAN HISTORY - better describes the geography and scope covered. And a new award-winning teacher has vetted the book.
