Adopted at over 600 universities, colleges, and schools across the country, Eric Foner's Give Me Liberty!is making a difference in the American history survey course. Featuring a single author and a single, comprehensive theme, Give Me Liberty!presents American history with unparalleled clarity and coherence.

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 Freedompaired 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.

Synopsis:

Freedom, the oldest of cliches and the most modern of aspirations, is the unifying theme in the new survey of American history by Eric Foner, the well-known historian and author of "The Story of American Freedom. As the fundamental idea behind Americans' sense of themselves as individuals and as a nation, freedom is deeply embedded in the record of our history and the language of everyday life. "Give Me Liberty!, examines the changing meanings of freedom, the social conditions that make freedom possible, and its shifting boundaries from colonial times to the early twenty-first century.
