The American Nation book. He taught at Michigan State University for 12 John Arthur Garraty was an American historian and biographer

The American Nation book. This volume is a comprehensive political history of the American nation which integrates social, economic and cultural developments in a single treatment. He taught at Michigan State University for 12 John Arthur Garraty was an American historian and biographer. He specialized largely in American political and economic history.

In The American Nation, co-authors Mark Carnes and John Garraty explore this complicated and fascinating relationship between politics and people. Paired with features such as Debating the Past, Mapping the Past, and Re-Viewing the Past, Carnes and Garraty explore the depth and complexity of the United States’ political framework, while making it easier for students to understand and explore.

This American History book is a very good, but not excellent coverage of the History of the United States. A history book with only a few maps in my opinion can not be recommended. Maps provide important visual political and geographical illustrative information that words alone can not. The book is typical entry level college material. Historical information is either very interesting with good detail to boring and vague.

The political history of the United States is intimately tied with its social, economic and cultural development. In a little over 1000 pages, Garraty covers just about every major event in United States history in interesting and extremely clear prose. I have yet to find any book that communicates such an enormous amount of information in such a small amount of space with such an enormous degree of clarity. I promise that this book will not only improve your understanding of . history, but will also serve as a lifelong reference source. A Truly Readable History Book.

Granted it's a really good book, when i received it in the mail, it had a "Chegg" sticker on it and it was TOW UP. The front cover looks like it needs to be taped up or something. The sticker is on the bottom left side and it looks like it's keeping the cover on! Overall, it's a much needed book for history. Make sure you tell "Amazon" if you receive THIS book! Needless to say, i can't stand HISTORY, but you need this book if you want to pass your class.

I'm really not enjoying this book. While I'm grateful to use it as a timeline to look up crucial events that occurred like battles or when certain documents were written, it is useful. It bores the reader, although it could be worse. It does not include everything it should regarding what actually happened--seems to disclude certain events or personality traits of founding fathers in favor of patriotism. By choosing to read this history text book, you could do worse. You could also do better.

I bought this book for two online courses I took in college. Although the book has many interesting pictures and topics, I was confused quickly. The biggest problem that this has is the lack of cohesive writing. Every paragraph feels like a completely separate piece of information, and the transition between paragraphs is weak and uninteresting. Another problem is how topics are placed. This book doesn't follow a chronological order. Every paragraph will throw a different date at you, and you will be swinging between completely unchronological dates.

It might be an interesting book for a recreational reading season, but for a history class, it was indeed a terrible choice.

I was required to buy this book for school. The text book itself is alright. I don't like revel, the online website. I was required to have that as well. The book arrived and was as I expected it to be.

This American History book is a very good, but not excellent coverage of the History of the United States. The book is typical entry level college material. Historical information is either very interesting with good detail to boring and vague. Photographs, portraits, paintings, charts, and illustrations are abundant and beautiful helping to keep interest level moving. However, the book rapidly sheds its allure and interest. That is because it fails to deliver on providing enough, interesting and neccessary political and war detail maps associated with important major historical events.

A history book with only a few maps in my opinion can not be recommended. Maps provide important visual political and geographical illustrative information that words alone can not. Previous editions of this textbook included enough maps to statisfy the reader. And the maps are still available, but the reader has to enroll, for additional cost, into an internet online service called " [...]" to access the maps. The textbook is already way overpriced at $96.00 dollars. The textbook is a beautiful hardcover with over 900 pages, but most of the information was compliled 40 years ago with frequent updating editions to the present year. no wonder this adds to why the cost of college education is soaring.

The authors receive commendation for a generally well organized book covering over 400 years of complex historical information. However, as historians they sold out on the students of history by not supplying all the information needed (the maps!).

Even so this history textbook is one of the better ones available. However, if maps are important to you. You will be disappointed.
disappointed it is just paper with punch holes in it...have to put it in a binder....for 60+ dollars it should be a bound book.
