Meet the Author

Thomas A. Bailey (1903-1983) taught history at his alma mater, Stanford University, for nearly forty years. Long regarded as one of the nation's premier historians of American diplomacy, he was honored by his colleagues in 1968 with election to the presidencies of both the Organization of American Historians and the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations. He was the author, editor, or co-editor of some twenty-books, but the work in which he took the most pride was The American Pageant through which, he liked to say, he had taught American history to several million students.

David M. Kennedy received his Ph.D. from Yale University. He is the Donald J. McLachlan Professor of History Emeritus and co-director of The Bill Lane Center for the Study of the North American West at Stanford University. His first book, BIRTH CONTROL IN AMERICA: THE CAREER OF MARGARET SANGER, was honored with both the Bancroft Prize and the John Gilmary Shea Prize. He has won numerous teaching awards at Stanford, where he teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in American political, diplomatic, intellectual, and social history, and in American literature. Dr. Kennedy published a volume in the OXFORD HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES, FREEDOM FROM FEAR: THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN DEPRESSION AND WAR, 1929—1945, for which he was honored with the 2000 Pulitzer Prize. He is an elected fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the American Philosophical Society, and he served from 2002—2011 on the board of the Pulitzer Prizes.

Lizabeth Cohen received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. She is the Howard Mumford Jones Professor of American Studies in the history department and the Dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. In 2007—2008 she was the Harmsworth Professor of American History at Oxford University. Previously, she taught at New York University and Carnegie Mellon University. The author of many articles and essays, Dr. Cohen was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her first book, MAKING A NEW DEAL: INDUSTRIAL WORKERS IN CHICAGO, 1919—1939, for which she later won the Bancroft Prize and the Philip Taft Labor History Award. She authored A CONSUMERS' REPUBLIC: THE POLITICS OF MASS CONSUMPTION IN POSTWAR AMERICA (2003), and is currently writing SAVING AMERICA'S CITIES: ED LOGUE AND THE STRUGGLE TO RENEW URBAN AMERICA IN THE SUBURBAN AGE, on urban renewal in American cities after World War II. At Harvard, she has taught courses in 20th century American history, with particular attention to the intersection of social and cultural life and politics. She now oversees the Radcliffe Institute, a major center for scholarly research, creative arts, and public programs.

    Way Too Biased

    A good history book is one that is not slanted. It tries to hard to appeal to the 'younger generation' that it loses its true meaning--to tell the history of America as it originally was. In my opinion, the last chapters of the book put Richard Nixon as though he was an innocent man in the wrong time. If you want to pass the A.P. exam, I suggest getting another book.

    A Great Tool for the AP Exam

    After taking the AP US History Exam, I found that reading this book and doing some worksheets (of the book)helped me to understand more the history of America. I recommend to all students to have this book as a significant tool for the AP Exam.

    Comprehensive, biased text

    American Pageant is a pantasmagorical serving a inductive source of matriculation. Some events, for example the entire Boston massacre story, are not covered as much as an avid historian would like. Nevertheless, in a compensation for all of Kennedy's marginality in cartography and oftentimes editorializing, William Moyer, who was our teacher at the time, believing wholeheartedly in intellectual enrichment and the belief in not giving into minimalism ultimately prepared us for the accompanying Collge Board examination in May. In the aftermath of the examination administration, come to my intial suprised that I recieved a 5 of out of a possible five. Thanks to outlandish as well as controversial supplementary source known as Zinn. Prior to taking AP US History, all of this information was general knowledge to me.

    A Good Recommendation

    As a former A.P. U.S. History student in one of the high schools in Northeast Sacramento County and a Sacramento Public Library employee, I highly recommend this book. Its context,even though it contains some bias to it, can be concluded as well-explained. I am currently suggesting this edition of the book to replace its older version in our book shelves as part of our circulation update.

    Very nice history book, easy to read also

    Bailey has one of the most easily read styles of any history book I've ever read. I like the different styles of the chapters, some chronilogical, with events and dates, and some topical, covering the attitudes and ideas of the day. Very nice book, and an improvement over the 10th edition. All I would ask is for Mr. Kennedy to add better maps to the book, as the ones included are not very complete.

    In depth coverage of most subjects

    This book is excellent as a general reference source. Some events, for example the entire Boston massacre story, are not covered as much as an avid historian would like. However, when used in conjuction with the American Spirit sister book, consisting of all primary sources, the American Pageant is a good text. Recommended for college or high school students.

    History at its finest

    American Pageant: A History of the Republic is an informative college text that includes all the nitty gritty details of our nation's past 400 years. Though Bailey's opinions are quite obvious at times, throughout most of the text a relatively unbiased view of history is presented. A must for AP United States History classes.

    A Good History Book

    This history book is very biased; however it redeems itself with its completeness of history and its refreshing views. We have a conservative history teacher, and he uses this book because of his views. There is another reason to use this book: one of the authors helps make up the AP US History exam every year.

    HISTORY STUDENT TELLS ALL

    American Pageant is a book that really narrows down on the subject material, American history. Every little detail, date, and name is typed out for you.

    Comprehensive but biased, confusing

    As a student enrolled in AP US History, I find myself continually disappointed by the American Pageant on many levels; while it is surely one of the most complete American history textbooks available, the author has a nearly ridiculous writing style (readers will quickly learn that he uses a formula to introduce presidents - state their full name, their background, some prominent physical feature which bears no relevance to anything, and then state his height in both feet and meters; he also includes silly and nearly unbelievable 'quotations' without citing sources). Beyond this, his incredible bias is too evident - making moral judgements throughout the book, especially on anyone who dares to earn money, Kennedy reinforces a dangerous philosophical trend with which I cannot agree - the Kantian idea that acting in your own benefit is immoral. Claiming that those who fought for their nation were 'selfless' and that those who stood by and did nothing were 'selfish,' the author implies that it was not in the interest of the colonists to revolt - yet it certainly was. This goes beyond semantics, as he outright labels industrialists in the Gilded Age as evil. The position of a history book is not to provide its readers with analysis, but rather to present facts and ideas which the students then themselves make judgements upon. What is even further distressing is his method of organizing chapters by topic, not timeline (although there is some general chronology), making it nearly impossible to pull together a time period and get a sense for it as a whole. While I do not know of another book to recommend, I heartily suggest that History teachers look elsewhere; they do not need to subject their students to a book which is philosophically biased and which is nearly ridiculous at times.
