What is included with this book?
American Passages places a unique emphasis on time as the defining nature of history, how events lead to other events, actions, changes, and often-unexpected outcomes. Rather than grouping facets of historical change into themes or topics, the authors offer students a complete, compelling narrative with balanced coverage of political, economic, social, cultural, military, religious, and intellectual history. The Dolphin Edition features the same engaging pedagogy and unique approach of the larger version in a scaled back, less expensive text.
