-Billy Hathorn, LaredoCommunity College
...does an excellent job of organzing the material in a way that ties everything together for the student...this text provides the best instructional aides on the market. Without the powerpoint presentations and instructor test banks, my preparation for these subjects would be considerably more time consuming and difficult.
-Andrew Bagley, PhillipsCommunity College
...does an excellent job at providing a compelling chronological narrative that flows smoothly. Although [our] History Instructor Selection Committee continues to examine other textbooks, we have not found one that surpasses the strengths of this textbook.
-Horacio Salinas, Jr., LaredoCommunity College
I once used a text that had very effective writing - but its political bias ultimately undermined its effectiveness. Also, some texts manage a very solid "feel" by omitting inconvenient parts of history. This text avoids all these pitfalls and remains the best.
-Hubert P. van Tuyll, Augusta State University
This text is very complete for an introductory course. It will keep the students' interest in learning.
-Armando C. Alonzo, TexasA&M University
...a comprehensive people's history that is not shy to be critical of many deeds, but is also careful to give credit to unknown individuals and groups when it is due.
-Dr, Itai Sneh, JohnJay College
..the picture captions ... inform students about the context and challenge them to think about the message a particular piece of art is sending. These seem well-chosen and not just throw-away illustrations.
