Give Me Liberty!, Second Edition (One-Volume Hardcover Edition)

Give Me Liberty!, Second Edition (One-Volume Hardcover Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring a single author and a single, comprehensive theme, Give Me Liberty! presents American history with unparalleled clarity and coherence. The study tools in the book and the companion print and electronic package ensure student success in the course.

The Second Edition builds on the success of the first, retaining the unifying theme of freedom while becoming more comprehensive, and adding stronger coverage of Native American and immigration history. In addition, the pedagogy has been strengthened with new Voices of Freedom paired primary sources in each chapter, chapter-opening chronologies, key terms, and more. Overall the presentation remains concise and crisp, free of the encyclopedic detail that clogs so many other survey textbooks.

Book News Annotation:

Foner (Columbia U., New York) has updated this excellent college textbook by expanding several areas, particularly that of Native American history and issues, the global context for U.S. history, the fate of the slaves who left following the War for Independence, immigration policies in the 1920s and the development of citizenship rights throughout American history, and world opinion of the U.S. subsequent to 9/11 and the war in Iraq. The volume is heavily illustrated with historic photos, drawings, and engravings, and contains many excellent maps. Though this is a chronological history set within political events, social and economic issues are prominent. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
