9780072996319: Nation of Nations: A Narrative History of the American Republic

Known for its friendly narrative style and careful blending of social and political history, "Nation of Nations" offers a balanced approach to teaching the American history survey course. The story presented by the authors reflects their belief that the American past can only be fully understood when linked to events worldwide. As a result of this view, "Nation of Nations" has become the leader in the integration of global material, done in a sensible and thoughtful way: displayed in essays, timelines, the epilogue, and throughout the narrative.
