Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

The American Journey, a cornerstone series for the U.S. History market, successfully blends the coverage of political and social histories of our great nation throughout the series. With this focus, the authors show that our attempt to live up to our American ideals is an ongoing journey. This journey, while still a work in progress, is increasingly more inclusive of different groups and ideas.

 

The path that led the authors to The American Journey began in the classroom with their students.  The goal of this text is to make American history accessible to students.  The key to that goal--the core of the book--is a strong, clear narrative and a positive theme of The American "Journey."  American history is a compelling story that the authors tell in an engaging, forthright way, while providing students with tools to help them absorb that story and put it into context.  This text combines political and social history, to fit the experience of particular groups into the broader perspective of the American past, to give voice to minor and major players alike, because the history of America is in the stories of its people.
