Recognizing the urgent need for students to understand the
emergence of the United States' power and prestige in relation to
world events, Gary W. Reichard and Ted Dickson reframe the teaching
of American history in a global context. Each essay covers a
specific chronological period and approaches fundamental topics and
events in United States history from an international perspective,
emphasizing how the development of the United States has always
depended on its transactions with other nations for commodities,
cultural values, and populations. For each historical period, the
authors also provide practical guidance on bringing this
international approach to the classroom, with suggested lesson
plans and activities. Ranging from the colonial period to the civil
rights era and everywhere in between, this collection will help
prepare Americans for success in an era of global competition and
