Description:

The American Promise: A Compact Historyoffers a unique mid-sized alternative to brief and full-sized texts alike. Designed to draw students into the book and spark their historical imagination, abundant artifacts in the visual program make history tangible and introduces students to material culture, while numerous voices of individuals in the narrative connect students to the people who embraced and contested America's promise. The narrative is condensed by the authors to provide just the right amount of text but not too much to preclude additional readings, and it is enhanced by an abundance of full-color visuals, special features, and study tools usually paired only with full-length narratives to engage and support students in every facet of their learning. The unique combination of narrative, visuals, features and study tools in this mid-sized book is offered at a price thirty percent lower than that of its full-length parent text, making the compact edition just the right choice for many courses.
