The American Promiseis more teachable and memorable than any other U.S. survey text. The balanced narrative braids together political and social history so that students can discern overarching trends as well as individual stories.The voices of hundreds of Americans from Presidents to pipefitters, and sharecroppers to suffragettes animate the past and make concepts memorable.The past comes alive for students through dynamic special features and a stunning and distinctive visual program. Over 775 contemporaneous illustrations more than any competing text draw students into the text, and more than 180 full-color maps increase students' geographic literacy. A rich array of special features complements the narrative, offering more points of departure for assignments and discussion. Longstanding favorites includeDocumenting the American Promise,Historical Questions,The Promise of Technology, andBeyond America's Borders,representing a key part of our effort to increase attention paid to the global context of American history.
