Historical images—many new to the third edition—are displayed throughout the text imaginatively and analyzed to reveal how they were used to express opinions, shape perceptions, and influence policy. The authors integrate these images throughout the historical narrative, rather than presenting them as secondary to the text. In REVEL, many of the included historical images are enhanced to enable a more interactive exploration.
An interactive Images as History feature in each chapter focuses on one or two images in depth. Images as History features enable students to unpack the meaning and purpose of various types of images—including cartoons, posters, magazine illustrations, fine art, and photographs. Dynamic chapter openers combine a vivid image with a narrative introduction and a quotation that immediately places the student in the era. Visually engaging maps, graphs, and charts —many of which are new to the third edition—make data accessible and provide geographical context. Enlarged quotations throughout each chapter give voice to the major issues of the day.
By helping students to visualize complex and sometimes agonizing choices, these features underscore the point that historical events are the products of human agency. Competing Visions features present excerpts from key primary source documents—personal letters, diary entries, speeches, editorials, and other written documents—to help students learn to appreciate the dynamic debates that shaped our nation. Envisioning Evidence features use graphics and illustrations to help students organize and analyze complex information on key topics.
The graphics and illustrations range from public opinion polls, household budgets, and economic figures to shipping logs, battlefield trenches, crime statistics, and maps showing living patterns.

This clear, detailed schedule helps students stay on task by eliminating any ambiguity as to which material will be covered during each class. And when students know what is expected of them, they're better motivated to keep up. It offers actionable information that helps educators intersect with their students in meaningful ways, such as points earned on quizzes and tests and time on task. Of particular note, the trending column reveals whether students' grades are improving or declining — which helps educators identify students who might need help to stay on track.
