In the long and rich history of American democracy, Americans have often been most proud of their capacity to change. In recent years, they have also become increasingly conscious of the continuing inequalities in their society. Alan Brinkley American History 15th Edition PDF continues to explore both halves of that dualistic story: the narrative of America as a dynamic organism, constantly reinventing itself and adjusting its political structures to meet new challenges and opportunities; and America as a complex mix of economic success, racial conflict, partisan polarization–and enduring inequality for some groups.
In a sweeping narrative that ranges far and wide, this edition brings to light some important innovators, leaders, and institutions whose contributions have become even more important in light of the recent economic and social transformations that have redefined contemporary America.
The first section provides readers with an overview of our country’s political development from colonial times to the present. The second section explores the emergence of modern American politics and discusses key issues of race, income inequality, national security, government reform, and education.
