Summary

Developed to meet the demand for a low-cost, high-quality history book, this text is an economically priced version of The Enduring Vision, 6/e (A(c)2008). The Dolphin Edition offers readers the complete text while limiting the number of photos, tables, and maps. All volumes feature a paperback, two-color format that appeals to those seeking a comprehensive, trade-sized history text. Like its hardcover counterpart, the Dolphin Edition's engaging narrative balances political, social, and cultural history within a clear, chronological framework. Each chapter features the latest scholarship, with coverage extending to current issues such as foreign policy, terrorism, immigration, and the 2006 presidential elections.
