Manufacturer Description

Introducing the new standard in American history.

The most authoritative single-volume encyclopedia of American history in twenty-five years, this groundbreaking reference has been a major undertaking prepared under the guidance of an advisory board of six prominent historians from around the country and of General Editor John Mack Faragher of Yale University. More than 125 contributors, all experts in their fields, present the best in recent scholarship, spanning the pre-Columbian period through the 1990s.

The result is substantially different from anything that has come before.
* Nearly 3,000 alphabetically arranged entries and essays
* Complete and authoritative treatment of traditional subjects
* Full coverage of topics at the forefront of American history scholarship today--women, African Americans, Native Americans, family life, urban history, and popular culture
* 400 black-and-white illustrations throughout
* Appendixes and time charts of American history
* Comprehensive cross-references and index for ease of reference, as well as innovative "topic guides" to facilitate deeper exploration and study
* Sponsored by American Heritage magazine, the nation's premier history publication

This hefty one-volume reference to American history offers nearly 3,000 articles providing the essential details to major events as well as little-known episodes. With Yale historian John Mack Faragher as editor, an advisory board of seven historians put considerable thought into the encyclopedia's organization and contents, and the wealth of material contained in its more than 1,000 pages is staggering. The articles are well written and loaded with information. And not only is the book a serious reference source, it's also a feast for the historically minded browser, as it contains countless brief articles on subjects ranging from the Bay Psalm Book to Milton Berle.
