9780073201924: Nation of Nations: A Concise Narrative of the American Republic

A world that has become suddenly and dangerously smaller requires an outlook that has become wider. "Nation of Nations" has always had a global approach to its narrative, placing chapters into perspective with Global Essays at the beginning of each part, and a Global Timeline correlating key national and international trends and events. In the third concise edition, the text enlarged its global coverage with Global Focus sections within the chapter narratives. In the fourth edition, "Nation of Nations Concise" adds more global comparisons to allow students to see how events in the United States and the world interact, from the Atlantic slave trade of the colonial era to the rise of terrorism in the late twentieth century. For the first time, a portfolio of color maps highlights these global perspectives.
