America: A Concise History Reviews
I used this as my textbook for HST202 (History of the United States from the end of Reconstruction (1877), to the present) and I thought it explained everything amazingly well. Chapters are spaced out and it isn't too long or short (30 pages each.) I just wanted to say that the authors organized the information in a clear and simple way. I even recommended it to a fellow classmate who was working on some history lesson plans and thanked me for the recommendation.
It's a textbook and honestly, the depth/detail and this book goes into combined with the numerous centuries it covers makes this volume a bit staggering. The story of America is apparently not for the faint of heart. Reading this book is arduous. Saying that, as a result of the many editions this book has been through it's chapters are very refined. The scholarship is top. Highly recommend. This is a dark tale, tread lightly.
I have found my solid reference work on American History. I have always considered myself a history buff, but this book gave me a much more complete understanding of the subject. This book is a keeper. I will read it again and use it in my reference library.
Its ok but could be more complete.
History Class Textbook. I actually enjoyed reading it, and the chapter notes were helpful.
As humongo college textbooks go...it wasn't too shabby. Downright entertaining at places. If you're looking for a good, general US History text, this isn't a bad way to go.
Amazing book. It explained everything happened in the history deeply and excitingly. It makes me, a Vietnamese, love the United States more
I am hating this history book! Unfortunately it is required by my History class, too bad they couldn't use The Making of America by Skousen instead.
For required reading of a history class this one isn't too horrible. You still learn a lot. Read other books if you want more details of certain events as well. Give this one a read.
