The Chinese and the Iron Road: Building the Transcontinental Railroad

"The Chinese and the Iron Road illuminates more fully than ever before the interconnected economies of China and the US, how immigration across the Pacific changed both nations, the dynamics of the racism the workers encountered, the conditions under which they labored, and their role in shaping both the history of the railroad and the development of the American West."

Food Fights

Food Fights sheds new light on these crucial debates, using a historical lens. Its essays take strong positions, even arguing with one another, as they explore the many themes and tensions that define how we understand our food—from the promises and failures of agricultural technology to the politics of taste.

The Ancient Art of Transformation

Tightrope : Americans reaching for hope

Tightrope : Americans reaching for hope

Nicholas Kristof grew up in rural Yamhill, Oregon, an area that prospered for much of the 20th century but has been devastated in the last few decades as blue-collar jobs disappeared. Kristoff's stories are representative of many places the authors write about, ranging from the Dakotas and Oklahoma to New York and Virginia. These accounts provide a picture of working-class families needlessly but profoundly damaged as a result of decades of policy mistakes.

Fault Lines: A history of the United States since 1974

Fault Lines: A history of the United States since 1974

"In [this book], Kruse and Zelizer reveal how the divisions of the present day began almost five decades ago, and how they were widened thanks to profound changes in our political system as well as a fracturing media landscape that was repeatedly transformed with the rise of cable TV, the internet, and social media. How did the United States become so divided? Fault Lines offers a richly told, wide-angle history view toward an answer."

El Norte: the epic and forgotten story of Hispanic North America

El Norte: the epic and forgotten story of Hispanic North America

"Because of our shared English language and our colonial roots, the United States has prized its Anglo heritage above all others. However, as Carrie Gibson explains, the nation has much older Spanish roots--ones that have long been unacknowledged or marginalized. The Hispanic past of the United States predates the arrival of the Pilgrims by a century, and has been every bit as important in shaping the nation as it exists today."

Black New Jersey: 1664 to the present day

Black New Jersey: 1664 to the present day

The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee: native America from 1890 to the present

"Because they did not disappear--and not despite but rather because of their intense struggles to preserve their language, their traditions, their families, and their very existence--the story of American Indians since the end of the nineteenth century to the present is one of unprecedented resourcefulness and reinvention."
