The latest addition to our very successful Overture Books program, "Nation of Nations: A Concise Narrative History of the American Republic," is based on one of the most successful US history survey texts in recent memory. Its success is due to its well-crafted blend of political and social history. This new concise edition incorporates the scholarship of the latest social historians , within the framework of a compelling narrative history. The narrative tells how this this teeming "Nation of Nations," as Walt Whitman named it, manages to prosper and expand to become the longest live republic in the history of the world. "Nation of Nations" attempts to tell its story with a flair that most textbooks lack. This new concise edition stands apart from other brief editions of U.S. history survey texts because it does not sacrifice narrative interest by condensing it out. This text provides a steamlined narrative, yet its style remains clear and its prose lively.
