With Issues and Controversies in American History, history comes to life, not as a mere recitation of names and dates but as a series of turning points where the future hung in the balance and opinions raged on all sides. This accessible educational database delivers dynamic, concise, and balanced coverage that provides the background, outcome, and contemporary points of view for every major debate and conflict in American history. Articles are arranged according to the 10 major eras that conform to national history standards. In addition, all articles have been indexed to key subjects such as immigration, politics and government, race and civil rights, revolts and rebellions, economics, religion, war and military, and more.
