Mapping America's Past: A Historical Atlas (Henry Holt Reference Book) (Hardcover) by Mark C. Carnes, John A. Garraty, Patrick Williams Hardcover: 288 pages Publisher: Henry Holt Company; 1st ed edition (January, 1997) Language: English ISBN: 0805049274 Product Dimensions: 12.2 x 9.3 x 1.0 inches Shipping Weight: 3.2 pounds. Book Condition: Interior and exterior fine Remainder Mark: No Dustjacket Condition: Fine Book Club Edition: No Price on Dustjacket: 50.00 Mapping America's Past: A Historical Atlas, by Mark C. Carnes and John A. Garraty, covers all things American: atmospheric changes over 18,000 years, the arrival, heyday, and destruction of Native American communities, and the politics of expansion, segregation, and isolationism. Many moments of American history--from slavery to Jewish immigration, cholera to race riots, the birth of the working class to moon rockets--are attentively detailed. Especially impressive is the balance between formative events (such as the Civil War), lesser-known movements (American socialism between 1901 and 1920), and neighborhood vignettes (such as the making of black Harlem). From Booklist This is an invaluable resource tool for specialists and an enjoyable, information packed work for general readers with an interest in American history. The maps illuminate often obscure aspects of our history that are rarely covered in general atlases. One can track everything from fertility rates on the western frontier to the ravages of Spanish influenza in 1918. The maps are generally in vibrant colors and are supplemented by lucid and sharply analytical text. In sum, this atlas provides a comprehensive look at the social, economic, and political forces that have shaped the American past and present. A different view of American History, September 9, 2003 Reviewer: Steven Schnell (Kutztown, PA United States) Finally, a historical atlas with the imagination to look beyond the requisite but unilluminating maps of wars, battles, and westward expansion to the rich territory of social history. Urban sprawl and white flight, ethnic politics, prostitution, the death penalty, segregation, civil rights, and many others all put in an appearance here. Some of the maps, while seemingly provincial in their coverage (WPA projects in Erie, PA, for example) are effectively used to illustrate broader points about the geography of American history. My only complaint is that in quite a few places, some sloppy editing (mistaken keys, mismarked captions, etc.) has marred the otherwise excellent cartography.
