This is a well-structured book that addresses important events and offers the viewpoints of the ordinary people who shaped history. The combination of text, images, timelines, primary documents, as well as a good selection of "small picture" and "big picture" questions appeals to various learning styles of students.

America’s History is both informative and engaging. With its myriad attributes, ranging from digital interaction to theme analysis, America’s History is sure to please.
--Whitney Snow, Midwestern State University

This is an excellent textbook that is distinguished mostly by its sensitivity toward new perspectives on early American history. I like the way that it is organized and written so that debates and discussions within our fields and discipline are relatively transparent compared to the panoptic voices offered by competing U.S. textbooks. The special features are useful and well-edited, and I appreciate how they do not interrupt the main textual narrative.
--Michael Wise, University of North Texas
