Show students how diverse communities and different regions have shaped America
Revel™ Out of Many: A History of the American People
focuses on particular communities and regions to weave the stories of the people and the nation into a single compelling narrative that continues to this day. Approaching American history from a truly continental perspective, authors John Faragher, Mari Jo Buhle, Daniel Czitrom, and Susan Armitage present vignettes — from New England to the South, the Midwest to the far West — that help students see how diverse communities and different regions have shaped America's past. Updated with the latest data throughout, the 9th Edition emphasizes the impact of social and economic inequality on contemporary American life from 1974 to the present.
