ABC-CLIO American History

Vendor: ABC-CLIO

Undergraduate students and university level researchers require a deeper understanding of America’s complex historical story to advance their learning. They need materials that provide clear insight into our country's precontact origins, westward expansion, social movements, internal conflicts, and contemporary defining moments—in addition to a complete chronological treatment of events.

American History is a comprehensive source of information for college-level learners that provides far more than names, dates, and a timeline of events; it is a treasury of scholarly essays that illuminate the intricacies of American politics, science, culture, philosophy, and economics. From the Civil War to Woodstock, this authoritative database explores the ongoing development of the United States, putting past events in context with modern times to foster greater comprehension and make the subject as engaging and instructive as it should be.Aligned with major textbooks and research-driven best practice, the latest version of ABC-CLIO's American History database stands alone as both a complete American history library collection and a dependable online resource for research projects. The Idea Exchange section offers informative, scholarly essays on topics that are often the basis for community college and undergraduate writing assignments. Created in collaboration with scholars, educators, and librarians, American History is specifically designed to enable the quickest access to the information needed, allowing researchers to learn more in less time.

Features over 16,000 primary and secondary sources, including overview essays; biographies; government, court, and cultural documents; photos; maps; audio/video clips; statistics; and more.
