Designed as a text for the second half of the U.S. history survey course, The Human Tradition in America from 1865 to the Present is a collection of the best biographical essays from several volumes in SR Books' popular Human Tradition in America series. Like all books in the series, this text presents history from the "bottom up" by chronicling the lives of ordinary Americans. These brief biographical sketches stress to students that history is created by people, making the subject appealing and vibrant in a way that just names and dates in a standard textbook cannot.

For this reader, series editor Charles Calhoun has carefully selected biographies of individuals whose lives highlight important themes from this dynamic period of history. The essays included here are sure to engage students, provoke lively classroom discussion, and promote critical thinking.
