Summary

Used by over one million students, America: A Narrative History is one of the most successful American history textbooks ever published. Maintaining the features that have always distinguished this classic text--lively and accessible narrative style, a keen balance of political with social and cultural history, and exceptional value--the Seventh Edition introduces a completely redesigned, full-color layout complemented by eye-catching maps and enhanced pedagogy. The Seventh Edition also introduces the new theme of environmental history. Carefully integrated throughout, this theme adds illuminating perspectives on how Americans have shaped--and been shaped by--the natural world.
