Give Me Liberty!: An American History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With characteristic clarity, Professor Foner has written an accessible, event-based narrative that is enriched throughout by the theme of American freedom. Foner shows students how the meanings of freedom have changed during the course of American history and how the limits of freedom have expanded and contracted in response to social, political, cultural, and economic events. The freedom theme integrates the text and motivates the study of history by alerting students to how much is at stake in understanding America"s past.

The first edition of Give Me Liberty!is available as a compact, low-cost paperback. Featuring the same text as the regular edition in a two-color format, the Seagull Edition is less than half the price.
