These United States discusses political, diplomatic, and military events, it also covers - and extensively - social, cultural, and economic events and currents. It deals not only with events, moreover, but also with people. Each chapter has a 'Historical Portrait' and a 'Historical Document' in the words of some representative figure of the period discussed in the chapter. i just wanted to read American history by this guy. i mean hes good at it. kind of didn't like the last part when he called barrack Obama the darkness luring over America.

Details about These United States: Using a thematic approach, this concise survey explores the many and varied threads of American history-social, intellectual, cultural, political, diplomatic, economic, and military-from the arrival of the first native American inhabitants thousand of years ago throught the crisis following the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, 2001.

This book maintains Pulitzer Prize winning author Irwin Unger's challenging "inquiry approach," organizing each chapter around a specific question designed to challenge students to consider the complexity of the past. The classic coverage has been both updated and expanded to offer a more contemporary approach while remaining an interesting and absorbing introduction to American history. This edition represents a condensed, streamlined version (about one-fourth shorter than its predecessor), presenting coverage in a brief format to both facilitate readability and reduce the price of the work to students.

shockingly this is a text book but the way Irwin unger writes it is interesting. i read it after reading the brown book with indieans on it in college. i just wanted to read American history by this guy. i mean hes good at it. kind of didn't like the last part when he called barrack Obama the darkness luring over America or something. i mean he could have been more like racialy sensitive like blacks have dignity and want to be in politics some how you know i would read something else by this guy if i seen it.

Is a text book

This book surprised me by concentrating on facts: it showed almost no bias and made no apologies for actions by the US or other nations, and did not try to cover up faults or negative actions. It is packed with information, but very readable for a textbook. Highly recommended.

Oh boy. Another book I was coerced into getting for classes, but I regret this one much more than the others. Though the book could use a better cover, it's really in need of an emergency editing. I found myself underlining horrendously incorrect sentences and misspellings while I trudged through the prose. I found it impossible to accept this book as fact with such simple errors littering the text. I really wonder if I somehow managed to get a first draft of the book with regular binding. I read the book for as long as I could stand. Maybe someday I'll flip through and see what I missed.

This book gives a great overview of American history to 1876. It is a traditional style text with nothing but endless words. A few maps or pictures would have broken up the monotony and made it an easier read.

Horrible text. Very difficult to focus on. Poorly written
