Concise Sixth Edition, Combined Volume

Nash, Jeffrey, Howe, Frederick, Davis, Mires, Pestana

With a rich and thought-provoking presentation, The American People focuses on the history and experiences of Americans, both ordinary and extraordinary, of diverse national origins and cultural backgrounds, at every level of society, and in each region of the country. Long regarded as the book that best represents the history of the common people, this well-rounded portrait of American history goes beyond the simple facts to explore the complex social implications of history in all aspects of American life.


  • A compact size and four-color design come together to make this book attractive, accessible, and easy to read.
  • “Recovering the Past” features provide students with the opportunity to review compelling evidence–from diaries and political cartoons to movies and popular music–that historians use in reconstructing and interpreting the past. Each of these features ends with thought-provoking questions.
  • “American Stories” open each chapter by relating the personal story of an average American and linking it to the main themes and concepts of the text.

New to the Sixth Edition

  • New authors Carla Pestana and Charlene Mires bring fresh expertise and perspective to a renowned group of scholars and professors.
