The American History Survey and the Comparative Approach.
Shapiro, Edward S.
Journal of General Education, v38 n1 p41-52 1986
Underscores the necessity of teaching United States history in a strongly international context, rather than perpetuating "historical provincialism." Advocates an approach that compares the American experience with that of other countries, highlighting both similarities and differences rather than the "unique and indigenous" nature of the forces shaping U.S. history.
