Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People, Concise Edition provides students with a clear understanding of how power is gained, lost, and used in both public and private life. This concise version retains the narrative clarity, unparalleled coverage, and thematic unity of the larger text while fashioning an unmatched integration of social and cultural history into a political story. The concise version' s emphasis on clarity and brevity provides a leaner and clearer presentation for introductory American history students. It retains the same strong chronological and thematic framework as the bigger text, but offers a more manageable option for instructors concerned about too much material and too little time.
