Ea Ideologically zealous right wingers really hate Foner but this textbook doesn t have a very strong political slant to it maybe the Communism thing comes out in vol 2 and I m strongly thinking of assigning this book next semester Eric Foner s high schoolcollege textbook isn t perfect by any means but it IS brilliant Foner s central conceit the idea that liberty is the cornerstone but rarely agreed upon idea of American history is brilliant and erudite Foner skillfully weaves together the idea of American freedom and teh fact that it meant many different things to many #Different People As It #people as it evolved Foner s biases are readily evident particularly in his hostility toward political conservatism but overall it s an excellent book choice for American history students Read it for History 112 at SCCC decent but know an American History textbook so it s a little boring especially to people like me Only giving it two stars for the content but even that s generous The facts are there but the text itself is disorganized and there s too much fluff It s hard to read
And Take Organized Notes take organized notes especially when The power (Novela) Version en español (Spanish Edition) you re limited for time The author digresses into backstories that really don t do much to support the critical information Great ifou re reading because ou re a total history buff and are using this as a bedtime story but terrible for students I was given this text for my AP US History class and with assignments averaging four chapters a week I uickly became frustrated I actually ended up finding pdfs of other textbooks online to help and read double because this textbook infuriated me so much Try American Pageant also fluffy but at least has better organization Textbook No Comment.
