The American Promise appeals to all types of students and provides the right resources and tools to support any classroom environment. A clear political framework supports a vibrant social and cultural story that embraces the voices of hundreds of Americans — from presidents to pipefitters and sharecroppers to suffragettes — who help students connect with history and grasp important concepts. Now in its fifth edition, The American Promise does even more to increase historical analysis skills and facilitate active learning, and its robust array of multimedia supplements make it the perfect choice for traditional face-to-face classrooms, hybrid courses, and distance learning.

This book is just a ton of words on a page. I was required to buy this several years ago for my history class. I remember skimming through the required reading with the anticipation of the end of my class. Perhaps it had to do with the professor, but I think the book makes a significant impact on a class. I had a terrible professor last year, but saved the book from her class and still continue to refer to it often. I listed and sold this book the day after the class was over so I could get my money back. It is hard to make a history textbook interesting, and I have yet to read an actual "exciting" history textbook. However, this one isn't exciting nor interesting. I never used it in an essay, and I have never needed the content found in it since I sold it.

This is a very traditional textbook. It focuses on the "Big Man, Big Event" Theory to U.S. History. It is lacking in maps and in other visuals. It is a good textbook if you want to know how U.S. History used to be taught and how to teach only to one part of your audience. I give it 3 stars because it does a fair job of coverage and provides a good narrative to U.S. History. There are other textbook out there that are better, more inclusive, and frankly, more teachable. It is a good book to give the framework or the structure of U.S. History, but not one that demonstrates the advances made in U.S. History textbooks in the last 20 years. I am a history teacher in High School that has taught from many different books over the years, has taught AP and Junior College classes. In included the last so that you would understand my background for the review.

Maybe it is a part of aging but I liked this book as a required read for an online history course. Not having enjoyed history in earlier school days, I found this book to present history in a different way that was more personal. By that, it was not just dates and names but what was actually going on during the times and some of the why conditions were like they were resulting in "historical" moments. The book and course actually allowed me to better understand not only the past but I can know better understand and define the future. Very insightful. My 4 vs 5 star rating would have to be in coverage of current history (1960 forward). I feel that this crucial time period up to the present has so much "history" yet it is not covered enough. Overall, a very good book worth having.

I found this text really engaging and informative. It included a lot of information I hadn't come across before, as well as historical accounts of everyday individuals in each chapter. The questions at the end of the chapter were good for review. I am rating this a 5/5 as a history textbook. I would not rate it so highly as leisurely reading material. That said, it is well priced and very useful, so I'd definitely recommend it to any professors who are looking for a book that won't break their students' budgets.

This book made me fall in love with History-of all things. Most of us know the old adage that history is important because it is inevitably destined to repeat itself and, thus, historical knowledge could serve as a benefit to our future. For me, this text epitomizes the vast base of wisdom gleaned from our colorful American history with corollary modern events that do in fact repeat again and again as the pendulum swings. The most amazing thing about this text is the breadth of information covered, not to mention the impressively captivating writing style that dusts off the buried treasure of information about very different times-ruthless and awful times to a great extent-that seems more like a different civilization than a mere generation. I highly recommend this book to read about and discover a history of America that simultaneously elucidates pride and repulsion about how our ancestors thought and acted. Each chapter ends with various selections for more detailed reading on a subject that may fascinate or intrigue you.

It's a very good textbook (both parts 1 and 2) because it fairly points out the flaws as well as the successes of the development of our country. Very good social history, noting our poor treatment of the Native Americans, and poor record on slavery, Jim Crow, and the Civil Rights Movement. The book is honest, not like textbooks of 40-50 years ago. I would have given it a 5-star but for the few errors I encountered in the supplementary materials (tests and notes). I am a professor and use this text to teach US 1 and US 2.

I cannot believe that I'm saying this, but this may well be the best history text I've ever read. That's not saying so much when you consider that so many other history textbooks bored me into a coma and I haven't mastered reading while unconscious, and therefore didn't finish them.

If you're looking for a US History text that is readable, engaging and sufficiently succinct, I'd recommend The American Promise, Volume C: From 1900: A History of the United States. The volume I read is part of a series, and it covered 1900 forward. The pictures are great, the anecdotes are informative and interesting and the writing is crisp. If you encounter a need to get a lesson from US History between 1900 and the early 1970s, this will be your go to source!
I needed this book for a college class and everyone received a different version. I apparently got a 'smaller' one but it gives me more information and right to the point. It's not heavy and easily can fit in a pocketbook. It was a used one so it had light pencil marks but nothing that can't be handled​.I will be returning it soon since my trial is almost up!
