Concise History of the American Republic Book
Chosen by Memoria Press as the text for their high school level American History course, this "concise" history is nevertheless lengthy with its 800+ pages of text. Covering pre-Columbian native American history and cultures briefly, it provides a grand and detailed sweep through American history with chapters tending toward 10-30 year segments. Drawing heavily from, but shortening and revising, a massive history (hence the "concise" in the title) first published in 1930 and revised four times over three decades, this is a second edition published in 1983 and brings American history to the Reagan era. Marked by authoritative scholarship yet written in a narrative style and illustrated with 30 maps and over 250 paintings, cartoons, and photographs, this will be both a challenging and an enjoyable read for the serious student. 859 pgs, pb ~ Janice
