LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER offers students a clear, concise understanding of how America transformed itself, in a relatively short time, from a land inhabited by hunter-gatherer and agricultural Native American societies into the most powerful industrial nation on earth. The authors promote this understanding by telling the story of America through the lens of three major themes: liberty, equality, and power. This approach helps students understand not only the impact of the notions of liberty and equality, which are often associated with the American story, but also how dominant and subordinate groups have affected and been affected by the ever-shifting balance of power. This Concise Fourth Edition updates the text's proven ability to cover social and cultural history with such timely topics as globalization, the impact of science and technology, evolving roles for religion, and expands upon the text's multicultural coverage. It continues to offer strong pedagogical tools including "History Through Film" to help draw students into the material and show the relevance of history to their own lives. Backed by an ancillary package unmatched in this market, including HistoryNOW (part of the CengageNOW suite of teaching and learning products), LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER is available in the following volume splits: *LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, CONCISE EDITION (Chapters 1-31), ISBN: 049505013X; *LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, VOLUME 1: TO 1877, CONCISE EDITION (Chapters 1-17), ISBN: 0495050555; and *LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, VOLUME II: SINCE 1863, CONCISE EDITION (Chapters 17-31), ISBN: 0495050563.

John M. Murrin studies American colonial and revolutionary history and the early republic. He has edited one multivolume series and five books, including two essay collections?COLONIAL AMERICA: ESSAYS IN POLITICS AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT, Sixth Edition (2010), and SAINTS AND REVOLUTIONARIES: ESSAYS IN EARLY AMERICAN HISTORY (1984). His own essays cover topics ranging from ethnic tensions, the early history of trial by jury, the emergence of the legal profession, the Salem witch trials, and the political culture of the colonies and the new nation to the rise of professional baseball and college football in the nineteenth century. He served as president of the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic in 1998?1999.Review:
"Overall, I think LEP (Liberty, Equality, Power) concise is one of the best US survey texts on the market today. It combines strong research and coverage with a high degree of readability at a reasonable price. Students will certainly benefit by reading this book, as it makes US history come alive."
"LEP is more successful than most other texts available in creating a coherent narrative that encompasses most segments of American Society. With its focus on issues of "Liberty, Equality and Power" it is better able to emphasize political or social history as appropriate to a given time period or subject, rather than giving a purely 'social' or 'political' history of the nation."
"This is one of the best texts on the market right now for a couple of reasons. First, it is one of the few textbooks that actually address cultural, political, and social history. Lastly, even though it is a concise edition, it does a wonderful job of including the most important themes, events, people, etc from all of the above fields while keeping the narrative flow."
"The quality of the scholarship and writing, as well as the balanced context, excellent maps and charts, and "History Through Film" features make this the best text I have found for a U.S. history survey course."
"...the text's greatest strengths are its breadth of coverage on important aspects of social history, especially in terms of race/ethnicity. I like that the text provides enough political/economic history to satisfy more traditional survey courses without neglecting the current trends in race/class/gender coverage."
