The American Journey: A History of the United States
Prentice Hall, 2002 - History - 592 pages
The Brief Edition of The American Journey was created by rewriting and cutting to condense text, and by using fewer photographs, maps, and charts to illustrate the text. The Brief Edition is about half as long as the original text. The Combined Version introduces students to the key features of American political, social, and economic history. Written in a clear, engaging style with a straightforward chronological organization, it provides students with a solid framework for understanding the past. It gives prominent coverage to the West and South and highlights the importance of religion in American history. It traces the emergence of distinctively American ideals and the way the conflict between those ideals and reality has shaped our nation's development. It brings alive the crucial issues and events behind the continuing effort of Americans to live up to their ideals. Compelling stories, ample use of quotations, and excerpts from primary sources bring the past vividly alive. The Combined Version encompasses the complete American history experience from transplantation, 1600-1685 and the creation of new worlds, to the shaping of a new America, 1965-1995 and searching for stability in a changing world since 1980. For history enthusiasts and those looking for a review of American political, social and economic history.
