A proven expert in his field, Alan Brinkley provides college and university students with a market-leading resource available for purchase or rental in his textbook entitled American History: Connecting with the Past Volume 2, ISBN 9780077379490. This text not only presents students with thorough coverage of the names and events of American History but also places specific emphasis on guiding the student to a connection with history as an ongoing story that provides insight about the present just as much as it does the past. Boasting an easy-to-understand writing style, the pages of this book challenge students to think critically about the various driving forces that shape America as well as to consider the diverse and intricate details of the foundations of this country. The most effective new and revised features are presented in this latest edition including a new series of 'Consider the Source' essays, a brand new pedagogy program, four new 'America in the World' essays, as well as expansive content updates. The genius behind this textbook, American History: Connecting with the Past Volume 2, is that of Alan Brinkley. He is currently serving as the Allan Nevins Professor of History and was also former Provost at Columbia University. Brinkley has also spent time on the faculties of MIT, Harvard, and the City University Graduate School and has also served as a visiting professor at Princeton, the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), and the University of Torino (Italy). Brinkley has won several honors including the Joseph R. Levenson Memorial Teaching Award at Harvard in 1987 and the Great Teacher Award at Columbia in 2003.
