Summary

Understanding the past helps us navigate the present and future. When you read this text, you will not only learn about American History, you will also be exposed to movies and music that tell the stories of American History. A highly respected, balanced, and thoroughly modern approach to US History, LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER uses these themes to show how the United States was transformed from a land inhabited by hunter-gatherer and agricultural Native American societies into the most powerful industrial nation on earth. This approach helps you understand the impact of the notions of liberty and equality, which are often associated with the American story, and also how dominant and subordinate groups have affected and been affected by the ever-shifting balance of power.
