Designed for teachers and students of the United States history survey course who prefer a larger measure of social history content, along with all the vital materials in political, diplomatic, legal, and economic history.

This four-color text is written by four major American historians. Its dramatic, clear prose, aimed at beginning college students, tells the nation's story in a way they will both feel and reflect on. It is a full length, standard-sized textbook that provides a coherent narrative rich in relating history, accomplishing its goals in slightly under a thousand pages (both volumes) of highly readable text, not including the appendices and comprehensive index.

Accompanied by abundant ancillary materials: maps, charts, tables, and separate student workbook.
