American Stories: A History of the United States presents an accessible exploration of America's rich, complex past. Authors H. W. Brands, T. H. Breen, Ariela Gross and R. Hal Williams look beyond the assortment of facts that make up US history to help you truly understand the story of our nation. This streamlined, powerful narrative explores the dilemmas, choices and decisions made by the American people, as well as by their leaders, that helped shape America.
The 4th Edition better connects these American people and their decisions with time and place. This approach enables you to learn how to think both critically and historically.
