"Over fifty years after its original publication, this classic work in American history is in its seventh edition. In a clear, vigorous style, its celebrated authors present the rich and complex narrative of America's experience in an account that extends from the pre-Columbian age to 1877 in Volume I, and in Volume II from 1877 to the present. Expertly revised to bring the study fully up to date, it reflects new insights derived from significant modern research."--Publisher description

Jefferson, nationalism, and the enlightenment by Henry Steele Commager( Book )

18 editions published between 1974 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History should not be written with one eye cocked on the passing scene. These essays, written over a period of years, were not designed as current commentary; they attempt, rather, to recreate and if possible illuminate the American past in its own terms. But an introduction may be indulged in greater latitude than the essays themselves, for it is an amiable literary fiction that introductions are prefatory rather than conclusive. Here, then, I can ask more explicitly questions the essays themselves merely suggest

This book, introduced by one of our foremost historians, communicates the passionate spirit of a tempestuous age, an era of reform unlike any other in our history.

The 55 documents included here begin with a letter from Thomas Jefferson at the end of his life (1826) and conclude with writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Horace Greeley
