Summary

With its sweeping inclusive view of American history, Created Equal, Brief Edition, Volume I emphasizes social history including the lives and labors of women, immigrants, working people, and persons of color in all regions of the country while delivering the basics of political and economic history. In this new, streamlined version of Created Equal, the authors have preserved the chronological framework and strong narrative thread, the rich tapestry of people and events, the engaging and illuminating stories, and many of the Connecting History and Interpreting History features of the original text, but have sharpened the presentation and prose and condensed each chapter by 25 percent.
