"The approach transcends my outlook on teaching a survey course in American History. The text does a good job of incorporating new information and preceptions into the historical narrtive without taking away from the standard history of various time periods. The authors do an excellent job of integrating social and cultural issues without over-burdenig the student reader."
- James S. Taw, Valdosta State University
"Sidebar essays highlight key moments in AmericanhHistory, and how historians interpret the past. It is a highly readable text, and an easy one fo teach from in class."
- John Howard Smith, Texas A&M University at Commerce
"The narrative flow is exceptional and the chronoligical organization fits most of our instructors' teaching methonds. The content balances strict chronology with good topical coverage and depth of coverage. I believe the book has one of the best structures and provides just enough social history but remains focused on the course of key events and persons. This book has such a great variety of online resources for the instructors and excellent online supplementary materials for the students."
- Laura Matysek Wood, Tarrant County College, Northwest
"This is by far one of the best organized, most readable textbooks covering Unites States history available on the market today. It makes my job much easier, knowing that as i advance through time in my class lectures, students can follow along in the textbook in a logical sequence with the much appreciated timelines in each chapter."
- Richard B. McCaslin, University of North Texas
