How did America transform itself, in a relatively short time, from a land inhabited by hunter-gatherer and agricultural Native American societies into the most powerful industrial nation on earth? You'll find out in Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People. The authors tell this story through the lens of three major themes: liberty, equality, and power. You'll learn not only the impact of the notions of liberty and equality but also how dominant and subordinate groups have affected and been affected by the ever-shifting balance of power.

Additional authors of the collection include: Paul E. Johnson, Alice Fahs, Gary Gerstle, Emily S. Rosenberg, and Norman L. Rosenberg.
