American Passages: A History of the American People: v. 1: To 1877

Paperback
This is Volume I (to 1877) of AMERICAN PASSAGES, SECOND EDITION that examines U.S. history the way people live--in the flow of time. Rather than pursuing one topic (such as politics, culture, society, reform, the military, or economics) at a time, each chapter of the text interweaves important themes and issues into one interrelated narrative. Through this method of presentation, students can observe the many ways that events, movements, and groups of people have served to shape history and can learn to make connections between these themes and issues. References to the book's fully integrated Web site and to AMERICAN JOURNEY ONLINE DATABASE--a cross-referenced, hyperlinked library of primary sources that are organized by topic--allow students to experience history from the vantage of those who lived it. AMERICAN PASSAGES: A HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES, SECOND EDITION is available in the following split options: American Passages, Comprehensive, Second Edition (Chapters 1
