Developed to meet the demand for a low-cost, high-quality history book, the Advantage Edition of THE AMERICAN PAST, Ninth Edition offers readers the complete narrative while limiting the number of photos, features, tables, and maps. Author Joseph R. Conlin's award-winning teaching and writing styles are reflected in this colorful look at the individuals, events, and ideas that have shaped our nation's past. Organized into short chapters and updated with new insights into recently published research, this text sets the story in a political context, weaving in social, cultural, economic, intellectual, constitutional, diplomatic, and military events along the way. Conlin's popular How They Lived vignettes--many of which are new in this edition--bring historical stories to life and emphasize the human and social dimensions of history. With its literary prose style and its unifying voice, THE AMERICAN PAST, Ninth Edition will capture and hold your students' interest as it guides them on an eye-opening walk through the past. Available in the following split options: CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: THE AMERICAN PAST, Ninth Edition (Chapters 1-52), ISBN: 978-1-111-34339-2; Volume I: To 1877 (Chapters 1-24), ISBN: 978-1-111-34335-4; Volume II: Since 1865 (Chapters 24-52), ISBN: 978-1-111-34340-8.

Informazioni sull'autore (2011)

Joseph Conlin was born in Philadelphia and educated at Villanova University (A.B.) and the University of Wisconsin (M.A., Ph.D.). He taught American history at half a dozen colleges and universities, spending most of his career at California State University, Chico. He was a Fulbright Professor in Rome and Salzburg and was twice Visiting Senior Lecturer at the Social History Centre at Warwick University, England. For 30 years (60 semesters), with a few subtracted for sabbaticals, he taught between one and four sections of the United States history survey course each term, a total of about 200 times. He won four awards for excellence in teaching. Conlin has written a dozen books, about 70 articles in scholarly journals and magazines of popular history, some 100 book reviews in a variety of journals, and more newspaper journalism than he can or cares to remember. Several of his published essays and one book were awarded "best of the year" prizes.
