Description

For two-semester U.S. History survey course.

 

Organized around the theme of American communities, Out of Many is a blend of social and political history that reveals the ethnic, geographical, and economic diversity of the United States, with a special focus on the country’s regions, especially the West.

 

The authors tell the story America by examining the individual, the community, the state, and the region, providing a coherent narrative on American History.  Showing these interplays between the individuals and groups and the groups and the regions, each chapter of the text will help students understand the textured and varied history that has produced the increasing complexity of America.
