Summary

Now in its Seventh Edition, Conlin's introductory American history text continues to offer a colorful and engaging look at the individuals, events, and ideas that have shaped our nation's past. The seventh edition of The American Past is a newer book than any version since the first: a new publisher, a new look, a more thorough rewrite of the previous edition; and more new material. Accessible and lively, it emphasizes political history, yet provides balanced coverage of social, cultural, economic, intellectual, constitutional, diplomatic, and military events. Consistent scholarship and a unique organization make this book comprehensive and manageable. The text benefits from Conlin's literary prose style, which lends a unifying voice that captures and holds students' interest. Also available in the following split options: THE AMERICAN PAST: A SURVEY OF AMERICAN HISTORY, Comprehensive, (Chapters 1-51), ISBN: 0534621368; VOLUME I:TO 1877, (Chapters 1-25), ISBN: 0534621376; VOLUME II: SINCE 1865, (Chapters 25-51), ISBN: 0534621384.
