I used this during my years in college and it definitely was helpful. It provides a healthy overview of American history. Of course it does not go in depth, but that's because it is a textbook. It's a great reference and starting off point. ( )

This is a new, revised edition of the survey text of American History up to the Civil War / Reconstruction. This is a good book but it suffers from lack of balance. ( )

This textbook is very liberal in its presentation of American history. While I personally agree with the interpretations, I feel it is not objective enough for me to use in class. Or, if I did use this work, I would certainly offset it with other perspectives. ( )
