Boasting 25 years as a top-seller, America: A Narrative History remains one of the most widely used history textbooks to date, having sold over 1.2 million units over the years. Now on its 8th edition, it maintains a compelling narrative style. Authors Tindall and Shimaintain insert very engaging anecdotes and interesting biographical sketches that help students remember key information more effectively. Built-in study aids have also been added, in addition to a wide range of electronic resources for both students and instructors. This textbook appeals to history majors and non majors alike, offering a well balanced presentation of the social, political, and cultural aspects of history, while also introducing another important theme, which is religion. America: A Narrative History (Eighth Edition) (Vol. 1) ISBN 9780393934069 covers history from the beginning (pre-Columbian Indian civilizations) to the late 1800s (aftermath of war). This volume covers the pre-Columbian era, European expansion, the Columbian voyages, Spanish empire, Protestant reformation, and British colonies. There are chapters devoted to the English Civil War and the events that lead to it, as well as in-depth discussions about the colonial era. The latter parts of the book talk about the American Revolution, the War in the South, the building of the new nation, and the early republic. The book also looks into the Washington, Hamilton, Adams, and Jefferson office, the War of 1812 and the crises that followed, as well as the Jacksonian regime. More chapters follow about the succeeding governments, reforms, and wars. Authors Tindall and Shi are well known in the academe, being distinguished professors and authors. George Brown Tindall has written several textbooks, such as the award winning The Emergence of the New South, South Carolina Negros, and The Ethnic Southerners. David Shi is known for The Simple Life: Plain Living and High Thinking in American Culture, and Facing Facts: Realism in American Thought and Culture.
