Review:

"The material is presented in a mostly neutral manner and does not slant too far in one particular ideaological direction. Some survey history books are less biased than others, but the Unger book is the most neutral i have seen in my ten years of college teaching."

    - Bill Wood, University of Arkansas at Batesville

 

"The text does a commendable job of covering US history in a concise, though thorough manner. It situates each chapter according to a guiding question which not only allows students to focus on central issues of the period but also encourages historical methods."

    - Kimberly Earhart, Mount San Antonio College

 

"The idea of organizing each chapter around a central question is rather novel and quite effective. The approach Unger employs makes his textbook easier to use in the classroom both for the purpose of discussion as well as in preparation for exams"

    - Frank J. Byrne, SUNY Oswego
