Overview

Highly respected for its impeccable scholarship and elegant writing style, Alan Brinkley's American History provides students and instructors with a broad, comprehensive approach to the American past. It offers not only a scrupulous account of American political and diplomatic history, but also a deep exploration of the many other fields that are central to a critical understanding of the nation's past: social, cultural, economic, and urban history, including the histories of the South and the West, the environment, science and technology, race, ethnicity, gender, and the global context of the American experience.

    (eTextBook) B&N is a bad company with poor practices.

    So I got this eTextBook for class, but the professor wouldn't allow laptops in class. So, I deleted the book and tried to process the refund online. I was under the impression that I had...then B&N charged me for the book. I assumed that it was an error, so I called them.

    They told me that the book was still available to me outside of class so they did not see what my problem was and acted like I was trying to steal money or something. After discussing this issue with them and being put on hold a few times they still refused to give me a refund.

    This company does bad business, is a bad business, and they deserve to fail. Their practices are disgusting.

    I will NEVER buy anything from this company EVER AGAIN!
