Summary

For freshman- and sophomore-level survey courses in U.S. History. The Brief Edition of The American Journey was created by rewriting and cutting to condense text, and by using fewer photographs, maps, and charts to illustrate the text. The Combined Brief Edition is about one third the length of the original text, and comes in Volume I, Volume II, and Combined Versions. The Combined Brief Edition introduces students to the key features of American political, social, and economic history. Written in a clear, engaging style with a straightforward chronological organization, it provides students with a solid framework for understanding the past. It gives prominent coverage to the West and South and highlights the importance of religion in American history. It traces the emergence of distinctively American ideals and the way the conflict between those ideals and reality has shaped our nation's development. It brings alive the crucial issues and events behind the continuing effort of Americans to live up to their ideals. Compelling stories, ample use of quotations, and excerpts from primary sources bring the past vividly alive.
