Overview

Organized around the theme of American communities, Out of Many is a blend of social and political history that reveals the geographical, racial, and economic diversity of the United States, with a special focus on the country’s regions.

Instead of looking at the country as a homogenous whole, the authors break down the country into more meaningful and manageable building blocks: the individual, the community, the state, and the region. Showing these interplays between the individuals and groups and the groups and the regions, each chapter of the text will help students understand the textured and varied history that has produced the increasing complexity of America.

The Teaching and Learning Classroom Edition provides a variety of extra tools to assist students’ learning, studying, analyzing, and retaining central concepts and themes. Critical thinking questions, maps, and a marginal glossary are a few of the many features that succeed in making Out of Many explore American history more deeply.
