Review:

Superior in content, sources, and organization. The text does a phenomenal job of profiling various people and moments throughout history. An additional strength of the book is the extensive use of visual aids and recommended readings at the conclusion of every chapter.

            -David A. Terry, San JoaquinDelta College

 

 

The greatest challenge has been in finding a text that both on-campus and online students can utilize. The Hine text seems to have eliminated this challenge.

            -Evyonne Hawkins, Richland Community College

 

I find it extremely well written, covering all of the bases. I wanted a text that does a good job with the basics of US history. Hine does that.

            -Theodore Kallman, San JoaquinDelta College

 

What really makes this book standout is the coverage of women and the many significant contributions they have made. My female students often thank me for choosing a book which makes them an important part of the story.
