We are pleased to announce that, in this fiftieth anniversary year of American Heritage , one of our favorite books has come back into print. A Sense of History , originally published in 1985, is an anthology of articles that together form a lively, unorthodox history of doings on our continent from the rise of the dinosaurs to the fall of Richard Nixon. iBooks has just reissued the book, augmenting the original text with a provocative fortieth-anniversary poll of how the nation had changed since the magazine first came into being, and a new introduction by James McPherson (848 pages, $29.95).

Enjoy our work? Help us keep going.

Now in its 75th year, American Heritage relies on contributions from readers like you to survive. You can support this magazine of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it by donating today.
