Summary

AMERICAN PASSAGES, BRIEF EDITION is a survey of U.S. History that uses online resources and a fully integrated, text-specific Web site to heighten students' awareness and understanding of the past. Crafted from the comprehensive text of the same title, this concise text follows the chronological contours of U.S. history. Each of its 32 chapters focuses on a discrete set of years--allowing the authors to weave events, movements, and groups of people into a unified narrative. The narrative helps students see the ways that different themes and issues in American history have interacted, and allows them to make connections between those themes and issues. Integrated references to the book's Web site and to AMERICAN JOURNEYS ONLINE--a cross-referenced, hyperlinked library of primary sources that are organized by topic--allow students to experience history from the vantage of those who lived it.
