Good history - close research  May 2, 2011

This textbook is so informative and gets right to the point! It is enjoyable and easy to read. It was a required reading in a short summer history class. The textbook reads well and is relatively easy to get through. Also I highly recommend this vendor, the purchase was very smooth. The price is very suitable and the book arrived earlier than the delivery date and in a very good condition for a used textbook exactly as described.

Summary

Of the People: A Concise History of the United States not only tells the history of America--of its people and places, of its dealings and ideals--but it also unfolds the story of American democracy, carefully marking how this country's evolution has been anything but certain, from its complex beginnings to its modern challenges.

This comprehensive survey focuses on the social and political lives of people--some famous, some ordinary--revealing the compelling story of America's democracy from an individual perspective, from across the landscapes of diverse communities, and ultimately from within the larger context of the world.

The Concise Edition tells the same great story, but with fewer words and images. Maintaining the structure, the features, and maps of the comprehensive edition, this concise version has been thoughtfully condensed--paragraphs now contain trimmed sentences and a reduced number of examples--thus leaving the book's core content and compelling narrative unchanged.
