Lettura densa e meritevole: una storia generale degli USA, completa e ben esposta in tutto il suo corso.
La scrittura è fluida, lucida, equilibrata nell'esposizione dei fatti e nei commenti a posteriori, riassuntivi, questi ultimi, di tutti gli aspetti onorevoli, deplorevoli e mediocri. L'impegno a tenersi al di sopra dei luoghi comuni e dei pregiudizi passati alla storia è sempre vivido.

Entirely engaging historiography sound account of America and fills in most of the gaps left by home based sources.

A must read for any student studying American History. it has so much information that my book looks more like a colouring book than a text book because I highlighted sections.
