Of the People: A History of the United States not only tells the history of America—of its people and places, of its dealings and ideals—but it also unfolds the story of American democracy, carefully marking how this country's evolution has been anything but certain, from its complex beginnings to its modern challenges.

This comprehensive survey focuses on the social and political lives of people—some famous, some ordinary—revealing the compelling story of America's democracy from an individual perspective, from across the landscapes of diverse communities, and ultimately from within the larger context of the world.

Beginning with emancipation and Reconstruction, Volume II: Since 1865 covers Americas history up through the age of globalization, the war on terror, and the election of the first African-American president of the United States.
