For more than twenty years, "After the Fact" has been a popular and best-selling approach to guiding students through American History and the methods used to generate it. In fifteen dramatic episodes that move chronologically through American history, this book examines such topics as oral evidence, photographs, ecological data, films and television programs, church and town records, census data, and novels.

From the Publisher:

-New Chapter 11! This entirely new chapter replaces the chapter on Huey Long with the story of the 'Dust Bowl Odyssey' and the migration of the Okies.

-New Chapter 14! This chapter focuses on presidential audiotapes as a source for historians. While Watergate provides the major focus, transcripts based on tape recordings during the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon years are also examined.

-Chapter 2 has been rewritten to incorporate recent scholarship on the witchcraft accusations and the psychological, social, and economic circumstances surrounding them.

-Chapter 3 includes new information on slavery in terms of the views of Jefferson and the Continental Congress and in terms of how slaves affected the drafters of the Declaration of Independence.
