Summary

Brief and economical. America: A Concise History is priced low so even students on a tight budget can afford it. America is 35-40 percent shorter than most full-length texts and about half the price, offering quality and flexibility to instructors and students.

An analytical narrative helps students understand not just what happened, but why. Supported by its compelling prose and focused narrative, students understand major developments and are not left wondering what's important. The narrative's six-part structure fosters student comprehension -- with each part featuring an introductory essay and a thematic timeline that work together to highlight the "engine of change" in each period of American history.

An accessible text in an appealing trade format. The authors of America: A Concise History take great pride in abridging the text themselves, and they carefully ensure that their narrative is as clear and accessible as possible. Students benefit from the text's attractive full-color design, and the high quality maps, illustrations, and chronologies make the past vivid.
