"The American Promise" appeals to all types of students and provides the right resources and tools to support any classroom environment. A clear political framework supports a vibrant social and cultural story that embraces the voices of hundreds of Americans -- from presidents to pipefitters and sharecroppers to suffragettes -- who help students connect with history and grasp important concepts. Now in its fifth edition, "The American Promise" does even more to increase historical analysis skills and facilitate active learning, and its robust array of multimedia supplements make it the perfect choice for traditional face-to-face classrooms, hybrid courses, and distance learning.
