History

This book is ideal for any introductory American history instructor who wants to make the subject more appealing. It’s designed to supplement a main text, and focuses on “personalized history” presented through engaging biographies of famous and less-well-known figures from the colonial period to 1877. Historical patterns and trends appear as they are seen through individual lives, and the selection of the profiled individuals reflects a cultural awareness and a multicultural perspective.
