The leading narrative history that students love to read, now made more relevant and accessible.
With more than two million copies sold, America remains the leading narrative history survey text because it’s a book that students enjoy reading.

For the Record: A Documentary History features nearly 250 primary source selections, both textual and visual, drawn from a broad range of government documents, newspapers, speeches, letters, novels, and images. A revised table of contents reflects the structure, organization, and emphasis on the culture of daily life found within America: A Narrative History, Tenth Edition, for which editor David Shi also serves as the author. The Sixth Edition’s selections are heavily informed by instructor feedback, resulting in a text rich with the pieces that historians prefer to assign, and, at just $10 net additional per volume when packaged with any edition of America, For the Record is available at an unbeatable value.
