Summary

Based on the idea that you can't cover (and don't want to) everything in a survey course, H.W. Brands and a team of award-winning historians present the story of American history in a refreshing new way. American Stories: A History of the United States concentrates on the topics most commonly taught in an American history survey course, with a focus on the major themes and the connections between them. A unique pedagogical program developed and implemented by instructional designers provides a consistent structure for students as the story of American history unfolds.
