"I would like to applaud the authors for their delivery of a textbook that finally incorporates the entire picture of U.S. history."
"One of the things I really liked was that the chapters presented the material in a traditional manner with all the 'basics.' Yet at the same time I saw all sorts of new information that I usually do not see, such as the biographies of and references to common people. I thought it made history very 'human, ' which is something I think most texts lack."
The chapters are interesting and incorporate real people...This means that students are not reading the same stories they've read for 13 or so years, written by different people. It makes things more interesting.
I was amazed, in fact, at how cleverly and subtly the international connections were incorporated into the larger narrative, including some, I'm rather chagrined to admit, I have never thought to include myself. That said, the global theme never seemed forced, and none of the international material is included just for the sake of inclusion.
