A perfect book for History M.A. students studying for Comps exams, this book provides historiography for American history-- essentially important for those with Modern America as a major field.

The read was very tough but informational. Good for research. Lots of good quotes and is a great book for historians.

Format: Paperback
This is easy to read, but does little more than give an overview of historical events. It might be a good place to start if you know nothing about a time period and want an introduction, but if you are looking for more detailed information, you will have to look further than this book. It also makes a lot of out-of-place references to various scholars, which I suppose would be useful if you wanted to get some names of scholars that have done work on a topic, but for my purposes, was annoying. I wish this book had a little more meat and a little less overview. Also, I ordered the kindle edition and I can't find a table of contents anywhere! It is thus hard to navigate and find certain chapters immediately.
