Develop historical thinkers through the stories that defined history
In By the People, author Jim Fraser tells resonant stories of the many different people who have shaped the United States as it is today – from everyday women and men to the most important leaders of their day. By leveraging both the relatable and remarkable people in U.S. history, By the People empowers students to focus on historical analysis and interpretation rather than simply memorize information. The result? A class full of historical thinkers who see themselves in history, and who may be inspired to join the list of those who have helped build a better, more hopeful country.

Please note: this version of MyHistoryLab does not include an eText.
