With the political history of the nation as its organizational framework, American Destiny: Narrative of a Nation describes the development and growth of the United States as the product of the myriad actions, ideas, and forces of the immense variety of individuals and groups who together comprise the American people.

In richly detailed prose, the book examines the political, social, economic, and cultural developments that have shaped this country. This elegantly written, high-quality text offers a low-price alternative to traditional U.S. history survey textbooks.



Mark C. Carnes received his undergraduate degree from Harvard and his Ph.D. in history from Columbia University, where he studied and trained with Professor John A. Garraty. The Ann Whitney Olin Professor History at Barnard College, Columbia University, Professor Carnes has chaired both the departments of History and American Studies at Barnard. In addition to this textbook, Carnes and Garraty have co-authored Mapping America뭩 Past: A Historical Atlas and are co-general editors of the 24-volume American National Biography, for which they were awarded the Waldo Leland Prize of the American Historical Association, the Darmouth Prize of the American Library Association, and the Hawkins Prize of the American Association of Publishers. In addition, Carnes has published numerous books in American social and cultural history, including Past Imperfect: History According to the Movies (1995), Novel History: Historians and Novelists Confront America뭩 Past (and Each Other) (2001), and Invisible Giants: 50 Americans That Shaped the Nation but Missed the History Books (2002). Carnes also created 밨eacting to the Past, which won the Theodore Hesburgh Award, sponsored by TIAA-CREF, as the outstanding pedagogical innovation of 2004.


 


밎arraty preaches a particular doctrine on historical writing, expounding on the details of a complex process whereby the murky abstractions of the past are distilled into clean, clear narrative. He insists that the writer뭩 sole duty is to readers. This literary alchemy is all the more wondrous for being so devoid of artifice, Carnes observes.


 


John A. Garraty. Holding a Ph.D. from Columbia University and an L.H.D. from Michigan State University, Professor Garraty is Gouverneur Morris Professor Emeritus of History at Columbia. He is the author, co-author, and editor of scores of books and articles, among them biographies of Silas Wright, Henry Cabot Lodge, Woodrow Wilson, George W. Perkins, and Theodore Roosevelt. Along with Mark Carnes, he is co-editor of the American National Biography. Garraty has also contributed a volume뻋he New Commonwealth뻯o the New American Nation series and edited Quarrels That Shaped the Constitution. He was a member of the Board of Directors of American heritage magazine and served as both vice president and head of the teaching division of the American Historical Association. His areas of research interest include the Gilded age, unemployment (in a historical sense), and the Great Depression of the 1930s. Of his collaboration with Carnes on The American Nation, Garraty says, 밃lthough this volume is the work of two authors, it is as nearly the product of a single historical sensibility as is possible. Mark뭩 scholarly specialization in cultural and social issues, especially gender, complements mine in politics and the economy.  The book has benefited, too, from his special interest in postwar America. Over the many years of our collaborations, one of our favorite topics of discussion has been the craft of historical writing. We share a commitment to clarity and conciseness. We strive to avoid jargon and verbiage. We believe that while the political history of the nation provides a useful narrative framework, its people are what give the story meaning.

How Wage Earners Lived...

'I'm forced to use this book in my U.S. History course. I find the book narrowly covers what is the territories of U.S. and before that the 13 colonies. It fails to really look at the people that live here, regardless of today's borders, and the origins of these people. As a person of diverse backgrounds (Latino-Native-German-Scottish), I find this book limiting, as it seems to go out of its way to exclude American Indians, and we really do not understand European origins and cultures as they relate to America, and our identity today.

In the American Revolution, there's no coverage of Indian support of Revolution, and later we are gifted with politicians gaining political power through promulgating their role in killing native tribes or leaders, but there's no coverage of the battles involved. The most appalling was coverage of Andrew Jackson, how he violated his oath of office by ignoring Supreme Court order and forcibly move Cherokees off their property (some accounts are half of race perished in forced march across mountains in winter without provisions or blankets). This is glossed over and omitted.

Anyhow, this book is comprehensive in certain topics, such as literature, religion, or complex experimental philosophies, but ignores the people and context in which they live, especially American Indians and historical Europeans. For an alternative on the colonies, I would recommend American Colonies, The Settling of North American. Other books are written for other time periods, like So Far from God: The U.S. War With Mexico, 1846-1848 for Mexican-American war. "

"Great book for my college history class. Exactly what I needed. Arrived quick and in okay condition. Would buy from again. "

"Item arrived Super fast & exactly as described. Would love to do business with again. A++++ "
