9780061319853: Out of Our Past: Forces That Shaped Modern America (Harper torchbooks)

The original edition of this now classic work was hailed by Jacob Cohen in The Nation as "the finest one-volume interpretation of American history extant."

For this Third Edition of Out of Our Past, Carl Degler has added a comprehensive new chapter on the historical development of American families, brought up to date the discussion of U.S. foreign policy, greatly expanded sections dealing with the place and history of women in our past, and made numerous changes throughout the text in light of scholarship published since the appearance of the 1970 Revised Edition.

Review:

"Carl Degler presents a skillful, discriminating distillation of the work of many experts in various fields . . . He possesses a gift, too rare among historical scholars, of lucid exposition and an excellent readable style." -- William Henry Chamberlin"The best single-volume interpretation of American history now extant. It is not a comprehensive ré sumé of our long history, but rather an account of the development of the issues, the conditions, and the values which concern us today."-- D. M. Potter, "Saturday Review""The author must be credited with a lively style, keen analytic powers, and a truly remarkable ability to synthesize current scholarship on a myriad of subjects."-- "Pennsylvania History"
