Volume 1 of The American Century, the classic text for 20th century American History courses, covers the United States from 1890 to 1941 and contains the first 8 chapters of the full book. This volume is being released separately for the first time to meet demand from instructors teaching courses that cover the prewar period. Written by three highly respected scholars, the volume seamlessly blends political, social, cultural, intellectual, and economic themes into an authoritative and readable account of the emergence of America in the first half of the 20th century. Each chapter contains a special feature section devoted to cultural topics including the arts and architecture, sports and recreation, technology and education. Enhancing the students' learning experience is the addition of web links to each of these features to provide complementary visual study tools.
