Faculty Book: American Social History Project

American Social History Project
Who Built America? Working People and the Nation's History, Vols. 2; 3d edition
(Bedford/St. Martin's, 2008)

Growing out of the effort to reinterpret American history from "the bottom up," these volumes focus on the fundamental social and economic conflicts in our history, integrating the history of community, family, gender roles, race, and ethnicity into the more familiar history of politics and economic development. This new edition has restructured chapters to make the book's information more manageable for students and contains more excerpts from primary sources. The editorial team, all on the staff of the Center for Media and Learning/American Social History Project (ASHP/CML), consisted of visual editor Joshua Brown, executive director of ASHP/CML and an adjunct professor of history at the Graduate Center; visual editor David P. Jaffee, a professor of history at City College and the Graduate Center; supervising editor Pennee Bender, an adjunct professor of interactive technology and pedagogy at the Graduate Center; supervising editor Ellen Noonan; and executive editor Stephen Brier, a professor of urban education and vice president for Information Technology and External Programs at the Graduate Center.
