Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE AMERICAN PAGEANT, 14th EDITION, enjoys a reputation as one of the most popular, effective, and entertaining texts in American history. The colorful anecdotes, first-person quotations, and trademark wit bring American history to life. The 14th Edition places an even greater emphasis on the global context of American history through a new feature, "Thinking Globally." Additional pedagogical features make THE AMERICAN PAGEANT accessible to students: chronologies in each chapter provide a context for the major periods in American history, while other features present primary sources, scholarly debates, and key historical figures for analysis. To meet the demand for a low-cost, high-quality survey text, CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: THE AMERICAN PAGEANT, COMPACT 14e, offers readers the complete text in an economically priced format. All volumes feature a paperbound, two-color format that appeals to those seeking a comprehensive, trade-sized history text.
