I use this book in conjunction with The Americans for my USH course the 2nd year and the two books go well together to show the development of democracy in the United States.
I use this book alongside another current events assignment I've designed and it is great to see what the background of each society and political system is.
You do not need to use the whole book to craft a fantastic course. Many chapters are independent so you can pick and choose to make a course that fits your needs.
I would never teach a class based only on one source of textbook information but this is a great starting point for additional research.

There are many erroneous statements and serious omissions.
It does not tell about the brutality of Shari'a law against women or
the demand in the Qur'an that infidels be killed or that those who
leave the faith are killed if a man or beaten until they repent or die
if a woman.
The bias is pervasive against Western Civilization, captilism, Christendom.
It seems to be written for the 7th or 8th grade level.
It has excellent graphics and footnotes,
