Description

Product Description

OFFICIAL PRINT VERSION: OpenStax OER official printed textbooks, published by XanEdu Publishing (XanEdu is OpenStax official print provider), ships from and sold by Amazon.com

ABOUT THIS BOOK: This is the most affordable printed OpenStax book available. As an OpenStax Partner we print all OpenStax textbooks with a unique soft cover and BW interior pages. The textbook content is exactly the same as the OpenStax book (Digital ISBN\-13: 978\-1\-947172\-08\-1). This textbook is available for free download at the OpenStax website, but as many students prefer the convenience of a printed book, we offer this book in partnership with OpenStax to provide an affordable printed option for college students.

BOOK SUMMARY: U.S. History is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of most introductory courses. The text provides a balanced approach to U.S. history, considering the people, events, and ideas that have shaped the United States from both the top down (politics, economics, diplomacy) and bottom up (eyewitness accounts, lived experience). U.S. History covers key forces that form the American experience, with particular attention to issues of race, class, and gender.

ABOUT OPENSTAX: OpenStax course materials are the most widely used OER textbooks in the world. Always free in digital format, the books are also available low cost in full\-color hardcover and BW paperback print formats.

I purchased this book just as an enjoyable refresher on American history. I loved everything about this book for the first 700 pages. Once the book hits the 20th Century the one-sided (far left) politics come out swinging. I consider myself and independent moderate, but the extent the author(s) went to in order to defend his obvious political leanings made the reading tasteless. It was very disappointing to start so strong and finish in such a ridiculous manner.

Worth buying
Reviewed in the United States on June 8, 2020
First I thought I would just read the free version online, but then I bought it. This is the book you have to have on your bookshelf. Totally worth buying the hardcover version.
Very good written.
Love the kindle version too .

DO NOT BUY! It’s only half of the book. 18 OUT OF 32 CHAPTERS!!
Reviewed in the United States on December 22, 2020
Half way through my class, I realized the book I received is not the book I ordered. The item description clearly says volume 1&2 and that it should be 1037 pages. The book I received in only volume 1 evidently and only has 18 of the 32 chapters!!! I’m furious!

I got this through the free textbook website. I read a lot of historical non-fiction and just was interested in an end-to-end overview. This book is pretty decent. I mean, it seems like the textbooks I paid $100+ for in college years ago. There are also little sections with links to a website that will redirect you to some primary and secondary sources related to the topic that''s being discussed.

Great review of our history. We all study this in high school, 50 years ago?
Reviewed in the United States on April 19, 2019
After high school in the 60s it was great to read our history again. I found this to be enjoyable and educational. There were many things in our history that I either forgot, didn’t learn or have been changed. I highly recommend reading this book.

In college, your textbooks are the most expensive thing you have to pay for outside of tuition. This book did take a little longer than I anticipated for it to arrive, but it arrived and is in great condition! I am happy to have the print version. My textbook was offered for free online, but it is so hard to zoom in and out to read. Definitely worth the $36 to have this textbook in print!

Very informative large text
Reviewed in the United States on December 31, 2019
This kindle book is very large and includes all you need to know about American History. It is easy reading since it is probably a high school text. It gives you a complete survey and if you want to go back and study further, you can get an additional book on this topic.

Fraudulence described as fact
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 16, 2020
A history book that describes Joseph Smith translating gold plates, as a fact, is clearly suspect. There is much evidence, overwhelming evidence, he was a fraud. This brings the rest of the material in this book into question.
