9781305492899: Cengage Advantage Books: Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People, Volume 2: Since 1863

Developed to meet the demand for a low-cost, high-quality history book, this economically priced version of LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER, 7th Edition offers the complete narrative while limiting the number of features, photos, and maps. All volumes feature a paperback, two-color format that appeals to those seeking a comprehensive, trade-sized history text. A highly respected, balanced, and thoroughly modern approach to U.S. History, LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER uses these three themes in a unique approach to show 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 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. The text integrates the best of recent social and cultural scholarship into a political story, offering readers a comprehensive and complete understanding of American history.

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."
