  • The History of the Mexican-American People

    Julian Samora

    Paperback (University of Notre Dame Press, Nov. 30, 1989)
    When A History of the Mexican-American People was first published in 1977 it was greeted with enthusiasm for its straightforward, objective account of the Mexican-American role in U.S. history. Since that time the text has been used with great success in high school and university courses. This new, revised edition of the book continues the history of Mexican-Americans up to the early 1990s. Samora covers such topics as the exploration and northward Spanish expansion into what is now the United States, Mexico’s independence from Spain, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that ended the Mexican-American War, the impact of the Mexican Revolution on both sides of the border, and the effect of mass migrations from Mexico to the United States. This edition also contains a revised chapter on Chicano contributions to the art, literature, music, and theater from the mid-1950s through the early 1990s, as well as a new chapter on the religious life of Mexican-Americans.

  • Out of Many: A History of the American People, Volume I

    John Mack Faragher, Daniel Czitrom, Mari Jo Buhle, Susan H. Armitage

    Paperback (Prentice Hall, July 23, 2005)
    This edition of a ground-breaking book weaves together the complex interaction of social, political, and historical forces that have shaped the United States and from which “the American people” have evolved. It tells stories of people and of the nation and emphasizes that American history has never been the preserve of any particular region. Traditional turning points and watershed events are integrated with the stories of the nation's many diverse communities. The book's trademark “continental” approach incorporates great hemispheric perspective, while a strong theme of community and memory analyzes the role–and the conflicts–of historical memory in shaping communities' understanding of the past. For American history buffs.
