Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With characteristic clarity, Professor Foner has written an accessible, event-based narrative that is enriched throughout by the theme of American freedom. Foner shows students how the meanings of freedom have changed during the course of American history and how the limits of freedom have expanded and contracted in response to social, political, cultural, and economic events. The freedom theme integrates the text and motivates the study of history by alerting students to how much is at stake in understanding America"s past.

The first edition of Give Me Liberty!is available as a compact, low-cost paperback. Featuring the same text as the regular edition in a two-color format, the Seagull Edition is less than half the price.

Synopsis:

Give Me Liberty! An American Historyis a concise, clear, and inclusive narrative of American history written by distinguished historian Eric Foner.

Synopsis:

Concise, clear, compact, Eric Foner's brilliant synthesis of American history is the perfect teaching tool for the U.S. survey course.

Synopsis:

Unlike so many textbooks that overwhelm beginning students with encyclopedic detail, Give Me Liberty! presents the events of American history in a nimble chronological narrative that equips students to understand their significance. It is a textbook that works

This book is great for learning college level history or even just for a fun, leisure reading. I like the smaller size of the book and a lot of pictures that are in almost every page of the book. They really allow me to visualize more and prevent History from getting boring since it's not a big book full of plain words. Before reading this book and taking the course in my college, History was not my favorite subject, but this book with its well-divided chapters really gives you interest in the subject!
