Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This trade-like survey text is known for Alan Brinkleys clear narrative voice, impeccable scholarship, and reliability, all at a low price. It offers a careful examination of American political and diplomatic history, while also exploring the other areas of the American past that are of interest to scholars and students alike. The balanced picture that emerges connects the newer histories of society and culture with the more traditional stories of politics, diplomacy, and great public events. The fourth edition features a completely new four-color design and expanded illustration and mapping program, as well as new "America in the World" features and more!
