In the 6th edition of The Unfinished Nation: A Concise History of the American People, Volume 2 (ISBN 9780077286361), world-renowned author Alan Brinkley combines a scholarly but entertainingly narrative approach in telling the story of the United States, earning it a spot in the best-sellers list of American history references. This unique textbook motivates the reader to analyze and reflect on the matters and issues influencing the nation and its people; it discusses the most significant turning points in American history, such as the new south and peacemaking problems, the frontier and the west, and the age of urban growth. Alan Brinkley's compelling take on the story of the nation makes The Unfinished Nation: A Concise History of the American People, Volume 2 unlike any other American history material for the university level. The author also emphasizes the continuous evolution of American history by tying in current events and by presenting a contemporary analysis of problems like global migrations, mass consumption, industrial supremacy, as well as how important events and issues of the past continue to affect modern-day society. This must-read is hard to put down; it sheds light on the ordeal of liberalism, the cold war, feminism, and the end of colonialism like no other history textbook can. The author concludes with a very interesting chapter on the age of globalization and describes contemporary America's global environmental movement, culture, technology, and economy, and how all these factors will continue to influence and mold the story of the American people.
