Alright for info, way too biased, should scrap all the New York Times type of ideology, specially when commenting on other centuries...

Wish there was a rating option of "I don't have an opinion." It was a textbook, not abysmal, not fantastic.

I actually had an exam with this book as an obligatory reference. Loved my Uni professor as well, she was challenging.

Very interesting introduction to American civilization. Sometimes a bit factual, but over all very useful.
