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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
