Out of Many,Brief: Vol. 2, Fourth Edition
This major revision of a path-breaking text weaves together the complex interaction of social, political, and historical forces that have shaped the United States by emphasizing that American history has never been the preserve of any particular region or of any specific group of people. Diversity is a central theme. The text's trademark continental approach has been refined to incorporate a greater hemispheric perspective, while a new community and memory feature analyzes the role-and the conflicts-of historical memory in shaping communities' understanding of the past. Automatically includes Mapping American History CD-ROM. Text format is 4-color, full trim size and costs 25% less than comprehensive texts.
