AMERICAN PASSAGES COMPACT ADVANTAGE VERSION, SECOND EDITION examines U.S. history the way people live--in the flow of 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 interrelated narrative. Through this method of presentation, 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. References to the book's fully integrated Web site and to AMERICAN JOURNEY ONLINE DATABASE--a cross-referenced, hyperlinked library of primary sources that are organized by topic--allow students to experience history from the vantage of those who lived it. The Compact Version is part of the Wadsworth Advantage Series which offers our Comprehensive text in a lower cost format. This black and white version of the text includes 4-8 pages of color map inserts to bring the regions to life. While the compact version includes fewer photos that the comprehensive version, it offers plenty of resources to make the course visual and exciting for students. In addition, students will have access to the Student website that offers quizzing, interactive maps, interactive timelines, simulations and links to over 400 readings to provide direct access to primary source materials.
