About

Overview

THE ENDURING VISION's engaging narrative integrates political, social, and cultural history within a chronological framework.

The eighth edition incorporates new scholarship throughout, includes a variety of new photos, and brings the discussion fully up to date with coverage of the 2012 presidential campaign. Based on the popularity of the "Going to the Source" feature, which was introduced in the previous edition, additional "Going to the Source" selections are offered online in the eighth edition. Available in the following split options: THE ENDURING VISION, Eighth Edition Complete, Volume 1: To 1877, and Volume 2: Since 1865.
