This book was okay, but in my opinion did not deserve the pulitzer prize. Througout the book the author repeats several themes too frequently throughout each chapter [as well as words].If Oscar Handlin could have expressed his points in a condensed version of this book, i believe i would have enjoyed it more. I will give him credit for putting some emotion and feeling into his writing, and for sharing specific situations relating to actual people.
