Among his many books are They Gathered at the River (1958), a provocative study of Protestant revivalism; The New Industrial Society (1969); The American Heritage History of the American People (1971); Pathways to the Present (1976); The Impact of Our Past (1976); Reaching for Empire (1980); From Sea to Shining Sea (1981); The Statue of Liberty (1985); Many People, One Nation (1987); The La Follettes of Wisconsin (1994); and America Afire (2000).
