The American Nation: A History of the United States surveys American history in a way that bridges the present to the past, emphasizing the relevance of history. By showing how history connects to the experiences and expectations that mark our lives, authors Mark Carnes and John Garraty bring the study of the American past to life.
The 15th Edition offers an updated structure, with focus questions leading off each sub-section. This helps you better comprehend key topics and themes, fostering deeper understanding of the past. Re-Viewing the Past essays, including new entries on Academy Award-winning films Lincoln and Argo, contrast Hollywood's renderings of history with events that really happened.
