The expansive efforts of Robert A. Divine, T. H. H. Breen, George M. Fredrickson, R. Hal Williams, Ariela J. Gross, and H. W. Brands prove to be a success in their text America Past and Present, Volume 2 (9th Edition), ISBN 9780205699957. Directed at introductory-level survey courses of American History, this book provides students with the combined presentation of the social and political aspects of American history. An entertaining writing style coupled with a chronological approach provides a seamless journey for students through the pages of the American past. Every type of American is discussed in this text from the elite to the ordinary, from women to men, rich to poor, and white Americans to the minorities. The leading expert behind America Past and Present, Volume 2 (9th Edition) is that of Robert A. Divine. Receiving his doctorate from Yale University, he currently serves as George W. Littlefield Professor Emeritus in American History at the University of Texas at Austin. Divine is a seasoned writer with published work including The Illusion of Neutrality, Second Chance: The Triumph of Internationalism in America During World War II, and Blowing on the Wind. The organizational techniques of Robert A. Divine, T. H. H. Breen, George M. Fredrickson, R. Hal Williams, Ariela J. Gross, and H. W. Brands are very helpful with chronological concepts presented across 17 chapters. Topics presented include reconstruction, the west, the industrial society, the move toward an urban society, political realignments, the move toward empire, the progressive era, and presidents during the age of progressivism. Other topics presented include the nation at war, modern America, the New Deal, the cold war, affluence and anxiety, the turbulent times of the sixties, new conservatism, and finally, the twenty-first century.
