9781305084131: Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People

Understanding the past helps us navigate the present and future. This book teaches readers about American history and exposes them to movies and other forms of popular culture that tell the stories of the nation's past. A highly respected and thoroughly modern approach to U.S. history, LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER, Seventh Edition, shows how the United States was transformed, 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. This approach helps readers understand the impact of the notions of liberty and equality, which are often associated with the American story, and recognize how dominant and subordinate groups have affected and been affected by the ever-shifting balance of power.

Review:

"The readability of [LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER] makes it easy for students to understand sometimes complex ideas. . . . The various [primary source features] provide opportunities to explore different ideas and often provide discussion topics, writing assignments, or extra credit."

"One strong aspect of LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER . . . is narrative that tries to balance cultural, economic, political, and social historical interpretations. . . . The text is often regarded as one of the best of its type."
