AMERICAN PASSAGES, BRIEF EDITION is a survey of U.S. History that uses online resources and a fully integrated, text-specific Web site to heighten students' awareness and understanding of the past. Crafted from the comprehensive text of the same title, this concise text follows the chronological contours of U.S. history.
