Recommends it for: high schoolers in American History
Recommended to Erik by: Mr. Ellenberger
We used this edited collection of primary source materials for Mr. Ellenberger's U.S. History course during the sophomore year at Maine Township High School South in Park Ridge, Illinois. Ellenberger had gone to Grinnell College and was, with Timothy Little in the senior year, a contributing factor in my applying there under their early decision plan.
Richard Hofstadter was an American public intellectual, historian and DeWitt Clinton Professor of American History at Columbia University. In the course of his career, Hofstadter became the “iconic historian of postwar liberal consensus” whom twenty-first century scholars continue consulting, because his intellectually engaging books and essays continue to illuminate contemporary history.More about Richard Hofstadter...
