Out of Many is a fine synthesis of U.S. political, social, and cultural history, with splendid attention to region ... engagingly written and illustrated for students.

-Michael J. Pfeifer, JohnJay Collegeof Criminal Justice / History

The text provokes student excitement by initiating interesting stories augmented by illuminating but not excessive details. The review questions enable students to prepare for class discussion and the recommended readings provide a starting point for students wishing to delve further in a particular topic.

-Dr. Deborah Welch, LongwoodUniversity

The community vignettes are the most compelling feature of the textbook, marking this text as unique and at once scholarly and accessible. I admire these essays greatly and when reading them feel I myself am learning from some of the best scholars in the field.

-TJ Boisseau, Universityof Akron

...the overall presentation is very effective in every way. In the end that is the most important attribute. I would certainly describe it as one of the best textbooks on the market today.

-Burton Peretti, WesternConnecticut State University

...an excellent text for instructors to use as they look for interesting information to add to their lectures.

-Thomas Clarkin, San AntonioCollege

From what I've seen over the years, the authors of Out of Many have proven to be very responsive to changes in the field, regularly broadening their geographic focus, highlighting the experiences of a wider variety of historical actors, and more meaningfully exploring global forces that have impacted American history. Thus, its most compelling attribute would have to be its sheer ambition in attempting to remain as current as possible, and it mostly succeeds.

- Jeffrey M. Schulze, Universityof Texas at Dallas

It is an easy-to-read, engaging text that gives students the information they need without bogging them down in unnecessary details, and it doesn't tell students how to think but rather gives them the information they need to draw their own conclusions.

-Cynthia Carter, FloridaCommunity College at Jacksonville

The main headings and subheadings help to navigate both instructor and student into a chronological and topical advance which both challenges and elevates critical thinking.

-Dr. John S. Leiby, ParadiseValley Community College
