Overview

Brief and affordable, yet careful not to sacrifice elements vital to student learning, America gives students and instructors everything they want, and nothing they don’t. The authors’ own abridgement preserves the hallmark explanatory powerof the parent text, helping students to understand not only what happened, but why — so they’re never left wondering what’s important. A unique seven-part narrative structure highlights the crucial turning points in American history and explores the dynamic forces shaping each period, facilitating students’ understanding of continuity and change. The narrative is enriched and reinforced by vibrant full-color art, carefully crafted maps, and primary-source features in every chapter. The result is a brief book that, in addition to being an excellent price, is an excellent value.

    Good book.... BUT...Nook is terrible!

    Nook sucks... you cant print past a certain ammount of pages or copy past a certain ammount of pages. Word search on nook sucks, super slow and force closes, and on top of that you can only view it on 2 computers. Way too many restrictions.... Buy the hard copy....
