Editorial Reviews


"These essays do indeed represent some of the best work in American history during the past year. Historians will find new approaches, new information, and fresh interpretations. Sample one or two of the essays in your own special field of interest, and you will be tempted to read on until you have absorbed them all."--James M. McPherson

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
With some very grand exceptions, it seems like a lot of second rate history was published between about 1993 and 2009. Most of these essays fall into the unexceptional category.
