Out of Many: v. 2 free pdf Organized around the theme of American communities, Out of Many is a unique blend of social and political history that reveals the geographical, racial, and economic diversity of the United States, with a special focus on the country's regions, especially the West. Instead of looking at the country as a homogenous whole, the authors break down the country into more meaningful and manageable building blocks: the individual, the community, the state, and the region. Showing these interplays between the individuals and groups and the groups and the regions, each chapter of the text will help students understand the textured and varied history that has produced the increasing complexity of America.
