This is a great wrap up of the American History from 1776 to the 1960's. It gives you a brief summary of the events in the perspctive of a historian. It also shows you the different perspectives of the different sides of the conflicts. I reallly enjoyed the book for all of the information packed into such a samll looking book. I found it really practical to any student. I recommend this to any student.
