Format: Hardcover
I decided I need to know my country's history better, so for the next few years I am reading my way through American history chronologically. I have chosen several books, such as The Federalist Papers and biographies of Andrew Jackson and Theodore Roosevelt, but I am using Morison's tome as a guide, stopping along the way to read the other books as the subjects come up in Morison's narrative. For that purpose it is wonderful because it is complete and sequential. But contemporary readers may be put off by his neglect of Native Americans and African Americans. If you want an original interpretation, this isn't it; if you want the mainline, traditional, stars and stripes version of American history, this is the exemplar.

Copyrighted in 1965, this is obviously not a new book but it is an excellent one volume history. Morison writes well and is a pleasure to read. I haven't yet read it cover-to-cover yet as I read it intermittently with other books. I also use it as a reference for things that come up in news or conversation.

American history, short as it is, need not be dull. This excellent book covers the material in-depth but never to the point you feel the author repeats himself. A real keeper!
