Summary

Based on the widely acclaimed survey text, The Making of the West: Peoples and Cultures, and condensed by the authors themselves, A Concise History retains the unique chronological synthesis, broad coverage, and geographic inclusion of the original work while providing an even sharper, more focused treatment of the historical development of the West. A tradebook format, full-color design, the richest map and art programs available in a brief edition, and a thoroughly integrated source collection combine with the clear, compelling narrative for a textbook that will spark the historical imagination as it captures student interest.
