More About This Textbook

Overview

In its comprehensive and inclusive view of American history, Created Equal provides an accurate, broad, deep, and compelling view of the nation's past. Emphasizing social history—including the lives and labors of women, immigrants, working people, and persons of color in all regions of the country—Created Equal also delivers the basics of political and economic history, thoughtfully examining the roles that all peoples have played in creating and defining those aspects of the nation's past.

Created Equal explores an expanding notion of American identity—one that encompasses the stories of diverse groups of people, territorial growth and expansion, the rise of the middle class, technological innovation and economic development, and engagement with other nations and peoples of the world.
