American history viewed from the thematic perspective of freedom
Eric Foner excels at showing students the big picture—how events and developments fit together like the pieces of a puzzle—without cluttering the account with excessive detail. The single authorship of Give Me Liberty! results in a coherent, streamlined, and engaging narrative.
The primary task of the book is to deliver to students a clear, event-based narrative account of American history. The basic narrative is enriched throughout by the theme of American freedom—its changing meanings, its promise, its limits, and the continuing efforts of Americans to define it and achieve it.continue reading »
