Summary
History is dramatic-and the renowned, award-winning authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier demonstrate this in a compelling series aimed at young readers. Covering American history from the founding of Jamestown through present day, these volumes explore far beyond the dates and events of a historical chronicle to present a moving illumination of the ideas, opinions, attitudes, and tribulations that led to the birth of this great nation. The Rise of the Cities discusses the factors leading to the settlement and growth of cities in the United States and examines some of the social problems that are part of city life. The authors explore the role of technological advances, governing strategies, and social welfare. "Continuing the Colliers' noteworthy series, The Drama of American History, these volumes concentrate on what the authors call 'the basic themes of the American story'...Two highly readable and informative volumes." "A book that focuses on the broad themes of history rather than facts and dates...accessible, attractive."
