People and a Nation Vol. 1 : A History of the United States, to 1877: stars based on 1 user reviews.
The Brief Edition of A PEOPLE AND A NATION preserves the text's approach to American history as a story of all American people. Known for a number of strengths, including its well-respected author team and engaging narrative, the book emphasizes social history, giving particular attention to race and racial identity. Like its full-length counterpart, the Brief Eighth Edition focuses on stories of everyday people, cultural diversity, work, and popular culture. A new design makes for easier reading and note-taking. Events up to and including the election of 2008 are updated and included, and new chapter has been written on "The Contested West." Available in the following split options: A PEOPLE AND A NATION, Brief Eighth Edition Complete (Chapters 1-33), ISBN: 0547175582; Volume I: To 1877 (Chapters 1-16), ISBN: 0547175590; Volume II: Since 1865 (Chapters 16-33), ISBN: 0547175604.
