SUMMARY

A Pocket History * of the * United States traces the history of the nation that is, today, the oldest constitutional democracy in the world. Written by distinguished American historians, it has more than 2,000,000 copies in print worldwide and is one of the classic works in its field. The United States, with its variety of peoples and races, its cultures inherited and new, is the most ambitious experiment in the history of nations-an experiment still very much alive. There are few parallels in modern history to the adventure of its swift expansion across a giant continent and the growth of a few struggling colonies into a nation of fifty states, united by religious tolerance, economic opportunity and political democracy. Now revised and updated, this remarkable volume presents and interprets the rise of the American people from their earliest settlements to the emergence of the U.S. as a world power, through the latest changes in foreign and domestic politics, up to and including the 1991 war with Iraq. Maps * Bibliographies * Index.Nevins, Allan is the author of 'Pocket History of the United States', published 1992 under ISBN 9780671790233 and ISBN 0671790234.
