Summary

See first-hand how the interplay of various forces shaped today's U.S. nation and its people into the powerhouse it is today. LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER, ENHANCED CONCISE EDITION, 4E shows you how to use the maps, images, and charts in the book to give you an edge in your study of history. A brief introduction to the text -- "Studying from Primary Source Materials" -- reveals some of the tricks to uncovering the past that your instructor wants you to know. "Discovery" sections, at the end of every chapter, assist you in practicing these skills, which will help you connect the text's themes and excel in your course. This leading, balanced presentation of political and social history comes to life with the help of award-winning, top-level authors, including pre-eminent colonial historian John Murrin, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author James McPherson. LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: ENHANCED CONCISE EDITION, 4E emphasizes liberty, equality, and power for a three-dimensional journey as you experience the transformation of America from a land inhabited by hunter-gatherers and agricultural Native Americans into the most powerful industrial nation on earth.
