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.

" This was required for AMH2020 and the teacher agreed - it isn't among the best texts. The authors' over-stylized narrations miss their mark and the valuable points become lost. Furthermore, it's sporatic in its presentation and often only glimpses certain important events. All in all, not recommended if avoidable. "

'Very biased American History textbook. Narrative style often makes it possible for the authors to hide certain controversies from the reader, or to introduce only one side of the story. This narrative definitely comes from the word "narrow". Do not recommend. "

"I have been anxiously waiting for the book to arrive. Although I expedited the order this item did not expedite. We are nearing the middle of the semester and I have a quiz on the material every class meeting, forcing me to go to the reserve desk at school to get the material. The book was promised on the twentieth and still nothing. Amazon needs to fully vet the distributors that the broker. I am so put off by the whole situation that I may just stick with competitor sights to avoid this from happening again. My trust in speedy service, which I paid extra for, is shaken. "
