Summary

Out of Many tells the story of the distinctly American character, built upon the ideal of local and cultural diversity. Carefully considering the complex social, political, and historical interactions that shape America's history, the narrative unfolds around one promise--to celebrate the differences that will always define America.

Still acclaimed for its scholarship, the Fifth Edition adds deep discussion, striking photos, and demonstrative features designed to portray the rich cultural and ethnic diversity that characterizes the United States' heritage.
