The Enduring Vision: A History of the American People, Volume I: To 1877
Cengage Learning, Jan 10, 2007 - History - 588 pages
The Enduring Vision features an engaging narrative that integrates political, social, and cultural history within a chronological framework. The first U.S. history survey to incorporate sustained attention to cultural history, the text is also known for its innovative coverage of public health, the environment, and the West--including Native American history. The Sixth Edition presents increased global coverage and a new comparative feature, Beyond America: Global Interactions, which provides an international context for significant developments in the United States. A range of student oriented pedagogical features--including focus questions and an online glossary--makes this edition even more accessible. The authors continue to explore the enduring vision of the American people, a vision they describe as a shared determination to live up to the values that give meaning to America.
