Format: Paperback
This book was just amazing. My teacher had us use it for her Modern American History class instead of a typical textbook. I actually felt that I learned way more in this book than in any historical textbook in that this book contains primary documents. So, you don't read sugar coated history that makes everybody happy, but rather what the people were feeling and seeing at the time. I truly felt apart of each era I read about and I felt like I knew the authors of the sections by their first hand accounts. I highly recommend this book for people who just love history or for people who want to seek truth!

Format: Paperback
I used this as a textbook for a history class of mine, but what I think made it a better choice as a book was that it's full of primary sources instead of just facts about the events. It gives you a better insight to what was happening in that era because that's when it was actually written. As someone who isn't a fan of history, I found it a good, informative read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this for a class and was pleasantly surprised at how easy of a read it is. All of the various sections help to break down the various aspects of history during that time. I would highly recommend this book to anyone studying US History, Civil Rights, Women's Rights, Domestic Policy or Foriegn Relations
