9780198205715: The Limits of Liberty: American History, 1607-1992 (Short Oxford History of the Modern World)

This is a major survey of the American past from the earliest colonial settlements to the present day. The author assesses not only the epic achievements of the nation, but also the tensions and limitations of the society behind the American dream. This edition continues the study to the 1990s, with a new chapter examining the conservative revival of the 1980s and the presidential elections of 1992. It also includes an additional map incorporating the most recently available statistics into the population tables.

"[Jones's] style is concise but graceful, his scholarship extensive, and he manages to pack much information and commentary into his limited format without seeming encyclopedic."--The Historian
