About this title

Synopsis:

Like its corresponding full-size version, The Enduring Vision, Concise, features an engaging, elegantly written narrative that emphasizes political, social, and cultural history within a chronological framework. The Enduring Vision was the first U.S. history survey text to incorporate sustained attention to cultural history, and is also known for its innovative coverage of the West and the environment. Relative to the Complete Edition, the Fifth Edition of The Enduring Vision, Concise, represents a 40 percent reduction in length. The full-color format offers the illustrative maps and captivating artwork of the full-length Enduring Vision at a fraction of the cost.
