This is actually a very good college history book. Believe it or not, things that happen in other countries impact the United States. This book points that fact out. In addition to foreign affairs, the text covers socio-cultural, economic, and political affairs. The entire point of a college history survey text book is that it covers a wide variety of information and discusses multiple views. This book does that, and it no doubt covers information that your professor is unable to talk about in class. High school books are written at a very low level and generally only provide the most essential facts. If you don't want to expand your mind and learn some new things in college, then stay at home. The fact that this book is 'too broad' is actually its strong point. If you want a more narrow focus, take a more specific college course than the United States from discovery until 1877.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is consise...but it does not cover the topic well. Too broad. Needs to keep the point centralized to American History. I have read high school U.S. History books that are better worded than this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
