Great book for generating historical thinking skills in students of history, adults and teenagers alike! A marvelous resource to use in Advanced Placement U.S. History classes - every classroom should stock both Volumes I and II.

THIS IS NOT A KINDLE E-BOOK.

Be aware, this purchase is essentially nothing more than a scanned version of a printed book. The upshot to this is the page numbers actually mean something for citation purposes. The downside is that you lose literally all of the other benefits of an e-book. Text size doesn't scale, you can't leave notes/bookmarks easily, and the app itself doesn't do a good job of reading it.

This is a piss poor effort, and sadly typical of the textbook industry. I have dozens of $1 novels written and produced by amateurs that have better production quality than this.

The content seems solid so far, which is why this has two stars. If you have the hard-copy version of this, I expect you'll be quite satisfied. But the digital version is awful. Find an "alternative" and save yourself the money. They are available.

Format: Paperback
This 6th edition, like its predecessors, tries to get the student reader to actively scrutinise the historical record of contentious events. Contemporaneous accounts are quoted from at some length. It is hoped that the passage of time lends some detachment from these past controversies.

The events looked at include the Sacco and Vanzetti trial, which is now put in the context of nativist bias against southern European immigrants in the early 20th century. Another chapter peers at the dust bowl during the Depression, and the internal migration of destitute farm workers in desperate search for work. The seminal The Grapes of Wrath (Centennial Edition), while fictional, is studied in part for the reactions against and for it when it was published.

This is not a review of the book's contents or a product.
I simply want people to be aware that even though the ebook version of this text is called a "Kindle Edition," it is NOT compatible with Kindle, or Android, devices. Very misleading on the part of Amazon.

Format: Paperback
In chapter eight, "View from the Bottom Rail", the authors speculate (correctly) that the in interviewer of the former slave from Charleston, Susan Hamilton, must have been a black man. Identified as Augustus Ladson, the man's full name was Harris Augustus Ladson. Born in South Carolina about 1907, he is listed in the 1940 census as "negro". He had an 8th grade education and worked as a carpenter in Charleston where he lived with his wife Genevieve.
