Format: Paperback
The history covers all of the main themes and events of U.S. history, but what makes it noteworthy are the images. Instead of being placed in the text to add some color and break up the words, here the images are interwoven with the text, referred to extensively in the narrative, and present a vivid introduction to the history. Images have points of view, especially political cartoons, and this text helps the reader spot the points of view and analyze them critically.

The book is a good way to get one's feet wet in the overall narrative and do it in an appealing way. The content of the text, including the interesting chapter introductions, glossaries of terms ending each chapter, and good interpretive questions on every page, is also of high quality for advanced or beginning learners.

I write this as a reviewer for Prentice Hall for their upcoming 2nd edition of the book.

The book puts way too much emphasis on race and sex, and then completely leaves out nearly every major battle in each conflict. For example, the conflict in the Philippines during World War II only has three lines written about it in the book. The Battle of Midway, located in the same chapter, takes up a similar amount of space. Admiral Doolittle and his raid on Tokyo aren't even mentioned in the book. However, more than half of the World War II chapter is dedicated to racism and women in workplace.
