Summary

Eric L. Bargeron; Edward J. Blum, Ph.D.; Anthony J. Connors, Ph.D.; Sally R. Evans; Brian L. Johnson, Ph.D.; C. Bríd Nicholson, Ph.D.; Kimberly K. Porter, Ph.D.; James F. Tidd Jr.; and Zoe Trodd, Ph.D., Editors

For more than four centuries, new ideas, principles, and events have caused major conflicts in American history, concerning such vital issues as slavery, freedom, democracy, immigration, and equal rights. It is through these very conflicts that American history is taught, and increasingly, this history is being taught through documents. From introducing slavery and breaking away from England in the colonial period to the Civil War in the 19th century, the civil rights movement in the 20th century, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan today, every era has been marked by conflicts in which Americans have fought passionately for what they believed in. All of these conflicts have defined what America is, and all of them can be studied through historical documents.

Conflicts in American History: A Documentary Encyclopedia explores the conflicts, controversies, and ideas that have made American civilization unique and distinctive. Blending narrative essays and primary sources, this comprehensive eight-volume encyclopedia provides students with the background they need to understand American history and the skills required to read and interpret the important documents that have shaped our nation. Each volume focuses on one distinct chronological era and the conflicts that defined it. Consisting of 10–20 manageable chapters, with each chapter devoted to one specific conflict and containing 10–15 original documents, every volume begins with a general overview essay that introduces the major conflicts, issues, and controversies of the period, as well as key figures and events.

A detailed chronology and annotated bibliography are included in each chapter. Each volume of the encyclopedia features approximately 200–300 original documents, a master bibliography, and a lengthy appendix with biographical sketches of 25–50 individuals mentioned in the documents or central to the period. A master chronology and index are included for the entire set in the final volume. This encyclopedia is the definitive reference on conflicts in American history.

Ideal for Advanced Placement U.S. History Students

This reference is an ideal resource for students taking Advanced Placement U.S. history courses and exams. The careful blend of narrative essays, primary sources, and detailed chronologies will provide students with all the essential information they need to interpret and answer document-based questions, or DBQs, which are a critical component of the AP U.S. history exam. Students taking the standard U.S. history course will also appreciate the clear presentation and analysis of the major conflicts and documents that are part of every social studies curriculum. Based on the National Standards for U.S. History, this reference will prepare all students for both general and advanced placement tests.
