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. Ogni epoca politica ed economica è accompagnata, nella sua descrizione, da un capitolo sulla società corrente
Incredibly informative, well-written, and well-researched. Exactly what you would want from a survey text book.

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. This is especially a book to own if you are a student at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus and are undertaking any American history books.
