America's national experience and collective history have always been subject to transnational forces and affected by global events and conditions. In recognition of this reality, GLOBAL AMERICANS presents a history of North America and then the United States in which world events and processes are central rather than colorful sidelights. In doing so, the text reflects the diverse experiences of you -- the students it speaks to -- and your families. You'll be immersed in an accessible and inclusive American history in which a variety of social, cultural, economic, and geographic dynamics play key roles. The authors want you to see yourselves in the narrative, primary source documents, images, and other media they have assembled. GLOBAL AMERICANS reveals the long history of global events that have shaped -- and been shaped by -- the peoples who have come to constitute the United States.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I was amazed, in fact, at how cleverly and subtly the international connections were incorporated into the larger narrative, including some, I'm rather chagrined to admit, I have never thought to include myself. That said, the global theme never seemed forced, and none of the international material is included just for the sake of inclusion.
The chapters are interesting and incorporate real people...This means that students are not reading the same stories they've read for 13 or so years, written by different people. It makes things more interesting.
"One of the things I really liked was that the chapters presented the material in a traditional manner with all the 'basics.' Yet at the same time I saw all sorts of new information that I usually do not see, such as the biographies of and references to common people. I thought it made history very 'human, ' which is something I think most texts lack."
"Global Americans covers the bases of traditional American history but, more importantly, begins the push to place American history in a broader transnational context and challenges ideas of American exceptionalism."
"I would like to applaud the authors for their delivery of a textbook that finally incorporates the entire picture of U.S. history."
