The discussion of the Spanish role in the American story has been enhanced with new coverage of Spainâs role in the American Revolution. This is an adequate text and one I might assign for my in-person lecture courses so that I might be able to supplement the depth the textbook is lacking. The chapter has been streamlined for clarity and brevity. The material is solid, but definitely enhanced with the use of images, embedded primary sources, and links to additional open source materials. The Great Depression, 1929-1932, Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal, 1932-1941, Fighting the Good Fight in World War II, 1941-1945, Post-War Prosperity and Cold War Fears, 1945-1960, Political Storms at Home and Abroad, 1968-1980, The Challenges of the Twenty-First Century.
US history textbooks are more likely to damage any enthusiasm students display in understanding US history than to nurture it. The text is structured well and has a great flow chronologically.
"This Will Not Stand”: Foreign Policy in the Post-Cold War Era. The summary indicating how Reaganomics hurt many vulnerable people while allowing yuppies to prosper puts this cool and fun examination into broader and more crucial historical perspective.
It is also missing as much cultural history as I would like. farmers
I'd judge this book's comprehensiveness to be about average or a little better. Itâs important to seek out learning experiences that challenge and inspire you.
I actually liked how the text divided sections on the Vietnam War among three different chapters--doing so may help students understand this war's long history, as well as its many shifts under three different administrations. read more. Reviewed by Kevin Rucker, Senior lecturer, Metropolitan State University of Denver on 10/24/19, I found that the text does broadly covers significant historical events and people in a broad overview. The Index needs to be more comprehensive, it is too...
The links provided in the text direct the student to additional information. This text covers Pre-Colombian U.S. to the 21st Century.
If an instructor wants to consider a theme like human rights - philosophy, development, legalization and abuses of those rights in the American story- they can do this with ease. This begins right from the start, as the American colonies are examined within the context of European power struggles, and the creation of racialized chattel slavery is presented as the result of political and religious struggles among European nations, and with the Middle East and Africa. This textbook does an exceptional job of providing a comprehensive though still nuanced portrait of US history. Three features—“Defining ‘American’ “, “My Story” and “Americana”—present a wide-ranging multicultural view of the past. By the the third chapter I was even more impressed with the organization and flow and that view remained throughout the rest of the textbook reading. CHAPTER 6: THE REPUBLICAN EXPERIMENT, 1783-1788. In some cases there are multiple chapters on one era.
Pearson, “United States History: The Twentieth Century,” California, P. 498; Pearson, “United States History: 1877 to Present,” Texas, P. 470. I liked exploring them, but not enough for them to be self-motivating. The review and critical thinking questions are a great supplement, as well as the glossary.
The modularity is fine, but the section titles are more confusing than helpful.
The text appears relatively easily divided into reading assignments that could be used in isolation. While the text does discuss 1840s expansion in chapter 11: “A Nation on the Move: Westward Expansion, 1800-1850,” nowhere in that chapter is the term Manifest Destiny introduced even though it was coined in connection with a debate to annex Texas in 1845 (which is addressed). I did not notice distortion or any issue here that would confuse the reader. Beyond WWII, elements of the Cold War such as propaganda get short shrift as does the issue of Berlin past the blockade in the late 1940s.
Readers learn about different time periods from the perspectives not only of leaders and elites, but individuals and groups who are often neglected or omitted by more traditional texts.
Eurocentrism is about seeing the world from one perspective, and ignoring the possibility that your reader does not share it. I did not find any inaccuracies, but again, there could be more substance is some sections. To save costs, the publisher used open source material for images. The book also presents events that have been obscured because of their effect on people of colour, like the police shooting at Jackson State College, alongside similar events, like the shooting at Kent State, to underscore how the race of those involved affects how we remember them. The authors discuss seminal events, dramatic moments, and hidden histories from every time period in the past. Not a problem of dumbing-down, by any means, but neither was there much depth or challenge in it. The chapter opening image, âLetâs Keep the Glow in Old Glory,â has been replaced with an image of the New York Tribune headline regarding the sinking of the Lusitania, located within the chapter in the first edition.
If there is a fault with this text in this particular area of assessment, it is that it is so determined to be culturally sensitive and inoffensive to the traditionally maligned / marginalized / mistreated groups (Native American peoples, in particular) that it swings too far to the other extreme and has a tendency to make broad, sweeping generalizations about white American society that are themselves far too broad to ever be completely accurate.
Yes, it would be relatively easy to add new sections without major disturbances in the existing flow of the text. I am very thankful for the well constructed, grammatically correct writing of this text. The book seems consistent when it comes to presenting history from a white, male, European perspective. The book is divided up into smaller sections that aren't too overwhelming. This text, I feel, fails on the first point, is not sufficiently robust to meet the second point, but does have the potential to achieve the third point. The review and critical thinking questions, at the end of every chapter, are a great way to assess students and check for understanding. While "Give me Liberty" are better productions on the page. Reviewed by J Bates, Assistant Professor, Minnesota State University System on 10/28/19, This textbook does an exceptional job of providing a comprehensive though still nuanced portrait of US history.
Students can read a chapter and follow the historical narrative without becoming overwhelmed in factual detail.
Engage Students- Spotlight Questions in the chapter openers preview the main idea for each major section and provide a framework for the entire chapter. CHAPTER 8: REPUBLICAN ASCENDANCY: THE JEFFERSONIAN VISION, 1800-1814. Race is dealt with properly as an important driver to many key events.
This helps greatly with modularity, but limits what the text offers students in terms of connecting different aspects of US history.
Reviewed by David Jamison, Visiting Assistant Professor, Miami University -- Middletown on 8/21/16, At 1052 pages, "U.S. History" is nothing if not comprehensive.
The lives and viewpoints of the different players, male and female, white and nonwhite, are meaningfully presented. The problem is that the glossary at the end of each chapter is labeled "Key Terms," but it includes a mixture of what I would...
The historical chronology flows in an orderly manner. It discusses the atomic bomb missions in detail (down to secondary targets), but merely alludes to the massive conventional bombing campaign. As for the learning objectives, they are directed to the content of the online text; at times the brevity of chapter content alone does not allow sufficient information for developing critical thinking responses.
