9780882952789: The United States: A Brief Narrative History

This third edition of The United States: A Brief Narrative History remains a basic, readable, and highly affordable core text for the introductory survey of United States history. While not intended as the only resource for students enrolled in such courses, it remains the most concise U.S. survey on the market—its length, approach, and price encouraging the use of supplementary readings, novels, research projects, and primary documents (many of which are available on the Internet) all for a price that falls well below the list price of a traditional survey text.

In addition to taking the engaging narrative all the way up through the second decade of the twenty-first century, the new edition features new maps. Loyal users will appreciate that fact that the book retains its cultural literacy approach, its lively narrative style, and highly effective highlighting of the names, terms, and concepts common to an educated person’s understanding of American history. Finally, its appendices comprise a useful, annotated text of The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and a list of U.S. Presidents.

Review:

Praise for a previous edition:

"This 'bite sized' approach to American history is as informed and informative as it is engaging and articulate. The United States: A Brief Narrative History is recommended for both school and community library collections, and an ideal read for immigrants new to the country and any others who are seeking a sound, easily absorbed grounding in the basics of American history." (Wisconsin Bookwatch, August, 2006)
