The Unfinished Nation: A Concise History of the American People, offers 400 pages of explicit narrative about the American history and the complexity of a continuously evolving nation. Written by Alan Brinkley, this bestseller remains one of the most impressive chronicles of the United States, offering a broad reexamination of historical evidences that ultimately help students develop a deeper understanding of how the past affects the present. This edition has been integrated with a broader report on the pre-Columbian period, as well as up to date developments that help explain how the new generation can influence history. Brinkley's The Unfinished Nation: A Concise History of the American People, Volume 1 (ISBN 9780077286354) covers all the important eras, from the pre-Columbian periods to the early Chesapeake, and onwards. The book consists of 15 chapters, the first of which talks about the meeting of cultures and the arrival of the English in American land. It then talks about transplantations and borderlands, and then focuses on provincial America. The author explains the transition of the empire and the start of revolt and war, leading to a discussion of the American Revolution. The 6th chapter discusses the constitution and the establishment of a new republic, followed by the Jeffersonian Era, variations of American nationalism, and Jacksonian America. The latter chapters tackle the economic revolution, followed by the cotton economy, slavery, and the old south. Students are also taken through a vivid depiction of the Antebellum culture, followed by the crisis of the 1850s, and the Civil War. Volume 1 of this dual-volume book ends with an account of the reconstruction and the New South.
