To write a comprehensive, balanced account of American history, [the text] focused on the public arena - the place where politics intersects social and cultural developments - to show how Americans confronted the major issues of their day and created far-reaching historical change ... [The] title [of this book] reflects [the authors'] emphasis on human agency and [their] conviction that American history is an unfinished story. For millions, the nation held out the promise of a better life, unfettered worship, representative government, democratic politics, and other freedoms seldom found elsewhere around the world.
