A concise survey of US history based on "The United States", 7th edition, but half as long, this text presents a balanced approach to history in a traditional political-institutional framework. This edition contains coverage of majority and minority groups with a strong emphasis on crucial demographic changes, especially as they have affected the roles of women, racial and ethnic minorities, and children.
