Review:

"I have been using [LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER] for 10 years at 4 different colleges; I believe 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."

"I like the thematic approach [of LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER]--it helps students to connect the material from chapter to chapter. It also enables us to track the progress of the country in the selected areas."

"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."
