Thomson Advantage Books: American Passages: A History of the United States, Compact Edition, Volume II: Since 1865
Throughout its engaging pages and scaled back design that translate to a great low price as part of the Wadsworth Advantage Series, AMERICAN PASSAGES COMPACT EDITION places a unique emphasis on cause and effect relationships over time, allowing students to gain a view of American history as a complete, compelling narrative. Rather than categorizing facets of historical change into ahistorical abstractions, such as "themes" or "topics", this text emphasizes the intertwined nature of three key characteristics of time ? sequence, simultaneity, and contingency. With an unparalleled sense of clarity and purpose, the authors convey how events grow from other events, people's actions, and broad structural changes (sequence), how apparently disconnected events occurred in close chronological proximity to one another and were situated in larger, shared contexts (simultaneity), and how history suddenly pivoted because of events, personalities, and unexpected outcomes (contingency). AMERICAN PASSAGES is available in the following splits: *American Passages, Comprehensive, (Chapters 1?32) ISBN: 0495188573; *American Passages, Volume I: To 1877, (Chapters 1?16) ISBN: 0495188581; *American Passages, Volume II: Since 1863, (Chapters 15?32) ISBN: 049518859X.
