Summary: Throughout its engaging pages and scaled back design that translate to a great low price as part of the Wadsworth Advantage Series, AMERICAN PASSAGES COMPACT EDITION places a unique emphasis on cause and effect relationships over time, allowing students to gain a view of American history as a complete, compelling narrative. Rather than categorizing facets of historical change into ahistorical abstractions, such as "themes" or "topics", this text emph
