Breadth, Brevity, and Balance: One-third shorter than its parent text, the new brief version of America: A Narrative History retains the coherent and balanced narrative of the full version while incorporating innovative pedagogy and an attractive two-color design. The authors have also introduced the theme of popular culture as a theoretical framework for viewing important political, social, cultural, and economic developments. With its winning combination of breadth, brevity, and balance, America is the ideal text for courses in American history.Strengthened Pedagogy New pedagogical elements guide students through the narrative and help them to identify connections between events and across chapters. Elements include:
* New Part Timelines have narrative-style entries that show the relationships between political, global, social, and economic events across chapters and over long periods of time. The new narrative-style entries make these timelines an ideal study tool for students
* Chapter Organizers introduce each chapter by outlining major points to be considered in that chapter.
* "Making Connections" Boxes at the close of each chapter help students see the connections among events discussed throughout the book.
* Two-Color Maps are easy to understand and read; the number of maps has been expanded in this edition.
