"Over 10 years in the making, American National Biography is a fascinating study of the people who have shaped the United States. Why replace the Dictionary of American Biography instead of merely updating it through supplements? Because the editors include new scholarship and people who were missed in the original, especially women and ethnic minorities. Numbering 24 volumes and containing 17,500 entries, the work offers readable, informative, and critical biographies for each subject, the location of their papers (if they exist), and selective bibliographies. Excellent indexes--subject, contributor, place of birth, and occupation--enhance use. This is an outstanding set that will be heavily consulted for many years to come."--"Outstanding reference sources 2000", American Libraries, May 2000.

Historical atlas of the United States by Mark C Carnes( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mapping the landscape of U.S. history is crucial to understanding the diverse people, the many cultures, and the embattled conflicts that share a common geography and continue to shape the nation. From the ancient migrations of Asian peoples to the Great Migration of African Americans, from Spanish explorations to U.S. interventions, from Civil War battles to civil rights struggles, the story of the United States is a vivid picture of historical change." "Historical Atlas of the United States takes this vibrant story of conflict and change and, using full color maps, crystallizes it for the reader into a clearly visualized history. Its scope is as diverse and wide-ranging as the country it depicts. It brings in focus the nation-shaping forces that are its national heritage: political, imperial, economic, environmental, demographic, and cultural history. Whether the often remembered events of World War II or the often forgotten Pueblo revolts of 1680, whether the Emancipation Proclamation or the impact of Hollywood, whether the routes of colonial traders and trappers or the routes of the contemporary drug trade, Historical Atlas of the United States charts both the dramatic, sweeping events and the slow, enduring developments that together contribute to the character of the nation."--BOOK JACKET
Novel history : historians and novelists confront America's past (and each other)( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historical fiction is a contradiction in terms. History is what happened; fiction, what did not. Yet great novelists have often disregarded this logical difficulty, taking up the tools of the historian to explore the shadowy recesses of the past. Their labors have brought forth many literary treasures. But how accurately do these masterpieces of the imagination reflect the past? In Novel History, twenty accomplished historians consider this question in relation to some of our most important historical novels. Their essays are followed in most instances by a response from the novelist. These dialogues illuminate one of the most fascinating and perplexing issues of our time -- the relation between the "real" past and our finest imaginative renderings of it. Novel History includes essays by distinguished historians such as John Demos, Michael Kammen, Joan D. Hedrick, John Lukacs, Eugene D. Genovese, Richard White, and Tom Wicker, and responses from notable novelists, including Gore Vidal, John Updike, Russell Banks, Don DeLillo, Larry McMurtry, Jane Smiley, Madison Smartt Bell, William Styron, T. Coraghessan Boyle, William Kennedy, Charles Frazier, Thomas Fleming, and Tim O'Brien. Novel History is both a uniquely compelling perspective and superb collection of literary history

Minds on fire : how role-immersion games transform college by Mark C Carnes( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are so many students intellectually disengaged? Faculty, administrators, and tuition-paying parents have been asking this question for nearly two centuries. And the answer is always more or less the same: students are so deeply absorbed in competitive social play (fraternities, sports, beer pong, World of Warcraft, social media) that they neglect academics. In Minds on Fire, Mark Carnes shows how role-immersion games channel students' competitive (and sometimes mischievous) impulses into transformative learning experiences. His discussion is based on interviews with scores of students and faculty who have used a pedagogy called Reacting to the Past, which features month-long games set during the French revolution, Galileo's trial, the partition of India, and dozens of other epochal moments in disciplines ranging from art history to the sciences. These games have spread to over three hundred campuses around the world, where many of their benefits defy expectations. Students think more critically by internalizing alternative selves, and they understand the past better by filtering it through their present. Fierce competition between opposing sides leads to strong community bonds among teammates and develops speaking, writing, leadership, and problem-solving skills. Minds on Fire is a provocative critique of educational reformers who deplored role-playing pedagogies, from Plato to Dewey to Erikson. Carnes also makes an impassioned appeal for pedagogical innovation. At a time when cost-cutting legislators and trustees are increasingly drawn to online learning, Carnes focuses on how bricks-and-mortar institutions of higher education can set young minds on fire.--Publisher description

Told more as stories than history lessons, the biographies in American National Biography Supplement I recount the tales of all the different people who shaped America--leaders, composers, entertainers, entrepreneurs, writers, scientists, and outlaws. Each one written by an expert in the field and masterfully woven together to present the most accurate and up-to-date information, the entries bring forth a powerful narrative of America's past and some of the most important figures that went into its formation. As the first in a series, ANB Supplement I extends the coverage from the original ANB to include notables who died prior to the end of 1999. This adds another four years of captivating history to the original 24-volume print edition's cutoff date of 1995. Among the biographies in the Supplement are articles first published in the ANB Online. The result is hour after absorbing hour spent exploring the dance of Gene Kelly and the music of Ella Fitzgerald along with the lives of Revolutionary War General Peter Gansevoort and literary scholar Fredson Bowers, among many, many others. With over 400 new listings, bibliographies after each entry, and a cumulative revised index of occupations and realms of renown, the Supplement continues the ANB tradition of bringing the people who have meant so much to this country to the forefront

The Columbia history of post-World War II America by Mark C Carnes( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every epoch bewilders those who live through it, but for Americans, the postwar era has been a time of breathtaking change and transition. With these comprehensive and engaging essays, this volume encourages readers to form a new perspective on a recent and highly debated period of American history. Contributors to this volume were chosen for their ability to conceive of topics in unconventional and provocative ways. Renowned scholars specializing in economics, foreign affairs, political science, and social and cultural history collectively reexamine the history of America since the end of World War II. Rather than divide this period into such traditional categories as "women," "television," and "politics," contributors take a cross-topical approach that emphasizes the interconnectedness of American life and society. Beginning with an analysis of cultural themes and ending with a discussion of evolving and expanding political and corporate institutions, these essays address changes in America's response to the outside world; the merging of psychological states and social patterns in memorial culture, scandal culture, and consumer culture; the intersection of social practices and governmental policies; the effect of technological change on society and politics; and the intersection of changing belief systems and technological development, among other issues. Many had feared that Orwellian institutions would crush the individual in the postwar era, but a major theme of this book is the persistence of individuality and diversity. Trends toward institutional bigness and standardization have coexisted with and sometimes have given rise to a countervailing pattern of individualizedexpression and consumption. Today Americans are exposed to more kinds of images and music, choose from an infinite variety of products, and have a range of options in terms of social and sexual arrangements. In short, they enjoy more ways to express their individuality despite the rise of immense global corporations, and this history imaginatively explores every facet of this unique American experience
A history of American life by John A Krout( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has changed in the past seventy-five years, and for that we owe no greater debt than to the publication of Arthur M. Schlesinger, Sr.'s life work, the first comprehensive social history of the United States ever undertaken, A History of American Life. Published in twelve volumes from 1927 to 1944, A History of American Life pushed the study of American history into places it had never been before, and legitimized a new discipline - social history - in its wake. Few series before or since have boasted more notable contributors, among them Pulitzer Prize winners James Truslow Adams and Allan Nevins, and Schlesinger himself, one of the most influential historians of the twentieth century
