A highly respected, balanced, and thoroughly modern approach to US History, LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER, uses these three themes in a unique approach to show how the United States was transformed, in a relatively short time, from a land inhabited by hunter-gatherer and agricultural Native American societies into the most powerful industrial nation on earth. This approach helps students understand not only the impact of the notions of liberty and equality, which are often associated with the American story, but also how dominant and subordinate groups have affected and been affected by the ever-shifting balance of power. The text integrates the best of recent social and cultural scholarship into a political story, offering students the most comprehensive and complete understanding of American history available. LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER is available in the following volume splits: Comprehensive (Chapters 1-32): 0-495-10540-6; Volume I: to 1877 (Chapters 1-17): 0-495-11606-8; Volume II: Since 1863 (Chapters 17-32): 0-495-11607-6.
