Summary: "[THE AMERICAN PAGEANT] doesn't neglect the social and economic aspects of the American experience as do too many other texts that are too exclusively political histories. In addition, it has what I would call a 'macro' and 'micro' approach to history; it presents the American drama both in terms of broad, over-arching themes and through the eyes of the individuals who were the players on its stage. In short, you get to see the forest and the trees!". Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_1305075900
