Building the American Republic combines centuries of perspectives and voices into a fluid narrative of the United States. Throughout their respective volumes, Harry L. Watson and Jane Dailey take care to integrate varied scholarly perspectives and work to engage a diverse readership by addressing what we all share: membership in a democratic republic, with joint claims on its self-governing tradition. It will be one of the first peer-reviewed American history textbooks to be offered completely free in digital form.
"Building the American Republic tells the story of the United States with remarkable grace and skill, its fast-moving narrative making the nation's struggles and accomplishments new and compelling. Weaving together stories of a broad range of Americans, drawing from the best scholarship, and writing in a warm and engaging voice, Watson and Dailey have crafted an inclusive history that is a pleasure to read."
(Edward L. Ayers, Tucker-Boatwright Professor of the Humanities, University of Richmond)
