9780076621422: American History: Connecting with the Past

Connect students to the experience of history. Connect students to success in history.


Alan Brinkley’s American History demonstrates that history is a dynamic story rather than a static collection of names and dates. American History shows an ongoing narrative, exploring historical evidence that teaches us about the past while revealing connections to the present. Known for its clear, single, balanced voice and impeccable scholarship, American History, Alan Brinkley's best-selling survey text propels students to think critically about the many forces that continually create and re-create the history of the United States. In this wide-ranging narrative, Alan Brinkley shows the diversity and complexity of the nation and of our understanding of its history—an understanding that continues to evolve both in the events of the present and in our reexamination of new evidence and perspectives on the past. This 14th edition features a new series of Consider the Source essays, superior in-text learning tools, four new America in the World essays, and extensive content updates that demonstrate how a new generation of historians and of historical actors continues to shape the American story.


And now, the most exciting of all, Alan Brinkley’s American History offers Connect History, an innovative online assignment and assessment platform, which combines a fully integrated eBook with powerful learning and teaching tools. Tools that make assessment easier, learning more engaging, and studying more efficient. For example within Connect History, a groundbreaking adaptive diagnostic, LearnSmart, provides a personalized study experience for each student ensuring the mastery of basic chapter content. Additionally with Connect History, engaging interactivities such as Critical Missions immerse students in pivotal historical events, asks them to explore these situations, and then, make recommendations based on their findings. Connect History sharpens students’ analytical skills, increases historical understanding, and improves overall course success.
