Overview

Highly respected for its impeccable scholarship and elegant writing style, Alan Brinkley’s American History provides students and instructors with a reliable, comprehensive account of the American past in which no single approach or theme predominates. From its first edition, this text has included a scrupulous account of American political and diplomatic history. Today, the book explores areas of history such as social, cultural, urban, racial and ethnic history, the history of the West and South, environmental history, the history of women and gender, and American history in a global context. The twelfth edition of this text includes the McGraw-Hill’s hit Primary Source Investigator (PSI) cd-rom, with hundreds of sources and a program that walks students through how to write a paper using those sources as evidence.

    Textbook is vague and ill suited for serious study.

    I am a high school student and I used this book during my Junior Year AP US History Class. It covers American history from before Columbus up until the beginnings of the most recent American involvement in Iraq. The book is decidedly vague on several important developments in American history, and is plagued by errors. Throughout the book, extra attention is given to relatively unimportant developments, while many important events are merely skimmed over. For example, a small paragraph describes the Treaty of Paris of 1783, which ended the American Revolution; in contrast, there is a two page special feature on horse racing in the early 18th century (pgs. 143, 194-195). While I would not discard the book as worthless, I would certainly not recommend it for any level of study beyond a low-level high school US History course.
