Overview

Highly-respected for its impeccable scholarship and elegant writing style, American History: A Survey provides students and instructors with a comprehensive account of the American past in which no single approach or theme predominates. From its first edition, this text has included a scrupulous account of American political and diplomatic history. Today, however, the book explores areas of history such as social, cultural, urban, racial and ethnic history, more history of the West and South, environmental history, and the history of women and gender. In addition, American history has not evolved in a vacuum, but as part of a larger global world. The eleventh edition of this text places American history into that global context, making connections for students who live in an ever-expanding world themselves.

    Accuracy in Monotony

    Brinkley's Survey has captured the facts of American history while at the same time failing to convey the spirit of our rich history. With its double columned pages and removed tone, this history does not convey the inspirational nature of such events as Yorktown and Saratoga.
