Summary

Brief, inexpensive, and compact, America: A Concise History, is 35-40 percent shorter than most full-length texts and about half the price. The appealing trade format and full-color illustration and map programs are certain to keep students engaged.

A powerful narrative, rewritten and reorganized by the authors to create a seamless analysis and compelling story of America's past, invites students to see the complex interactions of American history as more than just chronological events.

Part introductions anchored by thematic timelines highlight the engines of change in each period of American history, and the accompanying essays provide a guided overview of causes and connections, helping students understand not just what happened, but why.
