Overview

Examine American history through the lens of contested equality
REVEL™ for Created Equal: A History of the United States frames the American experience as the stories of various groups of men and women, all “created equal” in their common humanity, claiming an American identity for themselves. Presenting a rich historical analysis in a chronological framework, the authors challenge students to think critically about the ongoing struggles over equal rights and the shifting boundaries of inclusion and acceptance that have characterized American history. Updated with the latest data and statistics, REVEL for the Fifth Edition covers contemporary issues of inclusion such as marriage equality and the reopening of diplomatic relations with Cuba.
