It was totally sufficient for that, and very readable. Within a single chapter over an era, it bounces back and forth through time and even presidencies, so it's difficult to really grasp the chronological order of events. I don't necessarily expect footnoted references, but at least say who the person is.

I love to read, and Eric Foner's simple narrative kept me reading. Book Summary: The title of this book is Give Me Liberty! Many former slaves insisted that through their unpaid labor, they had acquired a right to the land. As a professor it was not the most user friendly text from which I have taught.
Best of all, if after reading an e-book, you buy a paper version of Give Me Liberty! For the early European settlers, freedom was closely aligned with rights, land ownership, slave ownership, and government. I cannot believe I am actually done with this. Does the electronic version of the book completely replace the paper version? Bottom line: This thing should have been shorter and I am sure as heck not recommending it. He has worked on every detail of Give Me Liberty! Emancipation became the target of the Union war effort. Very dry and boring, adequately informative for how many years of history it covers.
His books have won the top awards in the profession, and he has been president of both major history organizations: the American Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians. The Brief Fourth Edition is streamlined and coherent, and features stronger coverage of American religion, a bright four-color design, and a reinforced pedagogical program aimed at fostering effective reading and study skills.

This free and easy-to-navigate website offers students an impressive range of exercises, interactive learning tools, assessment, and review materials, including: quizzes, flashcards, and video exercises. It reads very easily and the writer does not try to impose an arrogant academia-style of writing, the kind where writers try to sound intellectual but to the rest of us it is confusing, convoluted and often self-centered in foundation and structure. Overall, it is a very well researched and thoroughly edited textbook that encompasses different historical and cultural events and their impact on society.
Thanks again very much Prof. As far as history textbooks go, this had to be by far the most wide-reaching, multi-perspective and Non Euro-centric textbook on American History I have yet had the pleasure of reading. Threaded through the chronological narrative is the theme of freedom in American history and the significant conflicts over its changing meanings, its limits, and its accessibility to various social and economic groups throughout American history. The book is engaging and interesting, especially for a textbook, and has a valuable online resource. What I have found surprising though is that for an academic text, Give Me Liberty often lacks objectivity to the point where Professor Foner blatantly injects his own subjective opinion into the text. Modern smartphones and computers can read files of any format. A single-author book, Give Me Liberty! I learned a lot while reading this book however, it was quick and didn't explain as much as I would have liked it to.
Professor Foner makes a concerted effort to convey how the average citizen experienced the history occurring around them and casts them as players in that drama. This streamlined edition, revised by author Eric Foner, is 30 percent shorter and includes a new pedagogical feature to help students read and review. It's just, the way this book is set up is painful. One of the things I liked about this is that the publisher offers support in the form of author videos that you can watch before each chapter. He has worked on every detail of Give Me Liberty!.
The leading United States History survey text, now available in a brief, full-color edition. He has served as president of the Organization of American Historians, the American Historical Association, and the Society of American Historians. Absolutely recommend any text by this publisher. In 2006 Foner received the Presidential Award for Outstanding Teaching at Columbia University. Potentially interesting events are made dry and the details omitted. I won't go too much into detail as I would be writing one lengthy review that might take the entire night and I don't feel like doing that right now! Not a fun read, but a confusing one that delivers skeletal information that can be used to guide readers to additional works over certain events and eras.
