by Edward L. Ayers,Lewis L. Gould,David M. Oshinsky,Jean R. Soderlund




With a unique attention to time as the defining nature of history, AMERICAN PASSAGES offers students a view of American history as a complete, compelling narrative. AMERICAN PASSAGES emphasizes the intertwined nature of three key characteristics of time--sequence, simultaneity, and contingency. With clarity and purpose, the authors convey how events grow from other events, people's actions, and broad structural changes (sequence), how apparently disconnected events occurred in close chronological proximity to one another and were situated in larger, shared contexts (simultaneity), and how history suddenly pivoted because of events, personalities, and unexpected outcomes (contingency).

Well, it's a textbook. It did what a textbook is suppose to do, increase knowledge!

American Passages is one of the best textbook about America's history from the foundation of Jamestown, to the Civil War, and ending on Obama's presidency in 2008. I highly recommend American Passages if you are a history major or if you like reading about America's history.

It's not a very usefull textbook, but then again that could have just been my teacher's use of it.

American Passages is a decent and remarkably readable survey text, but I quickly noticed that this particular edition contains quite a few grammatical and formatting errors. In some extreme cases, figures and their descriptions are even mismatched, which can throw the "big picture" of entire sections into disarray. Don't get me wrong, though: considering the price, I would've purchased this book even with prior knowledge of the errors. Just keep in mind that purchasing the "Advantage" edition comes with its own set of disadvantages.
Love it!
