Overview

LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, CONCISE EDITION provides students with a clear understanding of how power is gained, lost, and used in both public and private life. The Third Edition of this concise version retains the narrative clarity, unparalleled coverage, and thematic unity of the larger text while fashioning an unmatched integration of social and cultural history into a political story. The concise version's emphasis on clarity and brevity provides a leaner and clearer presentation for introductory American history students. It retains the same strong chronological and thematic framework as the larger text, but offers a more manageable option for instructors concerned about having too much material and too little time. LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, CONCISE EDITION is available in the following volume splits: Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People, Concise Edition (Chapters 1-31), ISBN: 053426462X; Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People, Volume 1: To 1877, Concise Edition (Chapters 1-17), ISBN: 0534264638; Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People, Volume II: Since 1863, Concise Edition (Chapters 17-31), ISBN: 0534264646.
