    Strongly recommended

    This may be the single best political and cultural history of any American period that I've ever read, with emphasis on "cultural." The writing provides wonderful insight into the mood of America, into the religious, feminist and abolitionist movements of our country. The book dwells at length on the telling influence of new technology and the pivotal role that transportation and communication played in the development of the United States and ultimately the world. Most importantly, this is an honest story--it tells not only of our triumphs, but of America's greatest sins, our treatment of both Native Americans and African Americans. THis is a mnust read for anyone interested in American history.

    Like a really fun textbook

    A wealth of knowledge and insight about a period of time few people (including me) know much about. A worthy member of the Oxford American History series (although this is the only one I've read.)

    Interesting Slice of history

    I enjoyed learning more about our past presidents. Our more current political situation is very much just a continuation of the past. I now have the worst president in history identified - Andrew Jackson: tyrant, murderer, white supremacist and liar. Compare him to Hitler and find much in common.

    I do recommend this book!
