Designed to emphasize major themes and events, the work also captures the rich and often amusing character of the American people. Extensively revised and expanded from America: A Concise History (Rorabaugh and Critchlow), America's Promise is a succinct, highly readable introduction to American history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
America's Promise offers a well-written and insightful account of American history. Students will find it highly engaging and informative. Unlike most textbooks, the authors blend political, social, cultural, and economic history into a synthetic account of where our country came from, where it has been, and where it might be going. -- Julian E. Zelizer, associate professor and director of the Undergraduate Program in Public Policy at SUNY Albany
America's Promise is a model textbook: Concise, inexpensive, and filled with anecdotes that make it interesting to read. It is a book that students will actually purchase and read-no small accomplishment in an era of overpriced, bloated textbooks often left unused on store shelves. The authors have turned the history textbook from a 'necessary evil' into a 'positive good.' Two thumbs up. Way up! -- Jonathan Bean, professor of history, Southern Illinois University Carbonale
