LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER, offers students a clear, concise understanding of how America transformed itself, in a relatively short time, from a land inhabited by hunter-gatherer and agricultural Native American societies into the most powerful industrial nation on earth. The authors promote this understanding by telling the story of America through the lens of three major themes: liberty, equality, and power. This approach helps students understand not only the impact of the notions of liberty and equality, which are often associated with the American story, but also how dominant and subordinate groups have affected and been affected by the ever-shifting balance of power. This Concise Fourth Edition updates the text's proven ability to cover social and cultural history with such timely topics as globalization, the impact of science and technology, evolving roles for religion, and expands upon the text's multicultural coverage. It continues to offer strong pedagogical tools including "History Through Film" to help draw students into the material and show the relevance of history to their own lives. Backed by an ancillary package unmatched in this market, including HistoryNOW, LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER is available in the following volume splits: *LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, CONCISE EDITION (Chapters 1-31), ISBN: 049505013X; *LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, VOLUME 1: TO 1877, CONCISE EDITION (Chapters 1-17), ISBN: 0495050555; and *LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, VOLUME II: SINCE 1863, CONCISE EDITION (Chapters 17-31), ISBN: 0495050563.
