Review:

"The quality of the scholarship and writing, as well as the balanced context, excellent maps and charts, and "History Through Film" features make this the best text I have found for a U.S. history survey course." "Overall, I think LEP (Liberty, Equality, Power) concise is one of the best US survey texts on the market today. It combines strong research and coverage with a high degree of readability at a reasonable price. Students will certainly benefit by reading this book, as it makes US history come alive." "?the text's greatest strengths are its breadth of coverage on important aspects of social history, especially in terms of race/ethnicity. I like that the text provides enough political/economic history to satisfy more traditional survey courses without neglecting the current trends in race/class/gender coverage." "This is one of the best texts on the market right now for a couple of reasons. First, it is one of the few textbooks that actually address cultural, political, and social history. Lastly, even though it is a concise edition, it does a wonderful job of including the most important themes, events, people, etc from all of the above fields while keeping the narrative flow." "'the text's greatest strengths are its breadth of coverage on important aspects of social history, especially in terms of race/ethnicity. I like that the text provides enough political/economic history to satisfy more traditional survey courses without neglecting the current trends in race/class/gender coverage." "the texts greatest strengths are its breadth of coverage on important aspects of social history, especially in terms of race/ethnicity. I like that the text provides enough political/economic history to satisfy more traditional survey courses without neglecting the current trends in race/class/gender coverage." "LEP is more successful than most other texts available in creating a coherent narrative that encompasses most segments of American Society. With its focus on issues of "Liberty, Equality and Power" it is better able to emphasize political or social history as appropriate to a given time period or subject, rather than giving a purely 'social' or 'political' history of the nation."
