Written by top scholars of American History, AMERICAN PASSAGES, BRIEF SECOND EDITION examines U.S. history the way people live-in the flow of real time. Rather than pursuing one topic (such as politics, culture, society, reform, the military, or economics) at a time, each chapter of the text interweaves important themes and issues into one clear narrative. Through this method of presentation as well as through the primary source material in every chapter, students can observe the many ways that events, movements, and groups of people have served to shape history and can learn to make connections between these themes and issues. This revision includes expanded review materials and pedagogy to help students get through the course as well as a free AMERICAN PASSAGES Book Companion Website created by Ed Ayers. This site includes chapter-by-chapter quizzing, interactive maps, videos, audio, and links to over 400 readings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The ?Passages? sections provide extremely useful overviews of each section's main themes. ? The timelines are also useful for showing the students that different events occurred simultaneously."
"?PASSAGES has perhaps the best collection of illustrations, maps, and photos of any text I have seen. What makes this collection even more effective is that they seem to appear at the right time in the text. ? I have thought many times that photos, and especially their placement, were an afterthought?but Passages gives me the impression that a great deal of planning?went into the production process."

"The AMERICAN PASSAGES site is by far the most thorough, the best organized, and most effective Web site that I have seen. It includes a first rate collection of online primary resources not available elsewhere. a] Thanks for great textbooks and a fantastic Web site!"
"I particularly like the organization of the chaptersa]especially the fact that they cover social, economic, and political events within a chronological framework that doesnat seem chopped up. Itas sometimes hard to provide both a topical and chronological focus in a way that makes sense to students and yet is true to the evolution of events and trends."
