Give Me Liberty!, Brief: An American History


Give Me Liberty!, Brief: An American History Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Give Me Liberty! is the leading book in the market because it works in the classroom. A single-author book, Give Me Liberty! offers students a consistent approach, a single narrative voice, and a coherent perspective throughout the text. Threaded through the chronological narrative is the theme of freedom in American history and the significant conflicts over its changing meanings, its limits, and its accessibility to various social and economic groups throughout American history. This streamlined edition, revised by author Eric Foner, is 30 percent shorter and includes a new pedagogical feature to help students read and review.

Book News Annotation:

This abridged edition of Eric Foner's preeminent textbook on American history provides students and instructors in time constricted US history courses with access to the best of the original textbook in an edited format. Though reduced to one third of its original length, the work continues to provide a comprehensive overview of American history, addressing all major events and themes from the first European settlements to the early years of the twenty-first century. The volume includes full-color illustrations and maps throughout, timelines, margin notes, and focus questions, and each chapter includes study questions and links to online resources. Foner is a professor of history at Columbia University. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
