Understanding the past helps us navigate the present and future. When you read this text, you will not only learn about American History, you will also be exposed to movies and music that tell the stories of American History. A highly respected, balanced, and thoroughly modern approach to US History, LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER uses these themes to show how the United States was transformed from a land inhabited by hunter-gatherer and agricultural Native American societies into the most powerful industrial nation on earth. This approach helps you understand the impact of the notions of liberty and equality, which are often associated with the American story, and also how dominant and subordinate groups have affected and been affected by the ever-shifting balance of power.

He served as president of the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic in 1998?1999.

Review:

"This is a high quality textbook that takes students seriously as learners. It challenges without being too daunting, it includes a wealth of material not present in other textbooks, and provides what I think is the richest treatment of U.S. history to 1877 than any other text I've used."

"I also love the movie and music features as well as the primary documents. [Students] get at a lot of different ways to access and understand historical processes."

"I have been using [LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER] for 10 years at 4 different colleges; beleive it provides excellent value for the money...appreciate & enjoy the social history strand woven through the narrative which elevates the interest & participation of my students... good overall narrative appropriate for a lower division survey at the right level for the average students."
