Stories from American History. American history is shaped by great and small events, and in recent years a generation of writers has brought these events to life. Oct 01, 2002 ISBN 9780142002490.

Brian Lamb's New York Times bestseller, Booknotes: Stories from American History, would make a worthy addition to any dentist office waiting room, but it is of little use to the historian. A collection of essays actually written by the historians, journalists, political analysts, and writers whose ninety-one names are attached to the eighty-one pieces in Booknotes would undoubtedly make fascinating reading.

Published in 2001, this book covers the history of the United States from it's founding in 1776 to 2000. It is divided into 9 sections covering different eras from 'Revolution and Founding' to 'The Culture Wars'. The book itself is in fairly good condition. The dust jacket is included. The binding is in good shape. There is a tear on the inside of the cover page. Other Products from bjdaypuff (View All).

In this volume, more than eighty contemporary writers and historians examine seminal moments from American history, celebrated and uncelebrated alike.

If you've ever read any of the BOOKNOTES series by C-SPAN host, Brain Lamb, you already know their value. I personally find this volume, STORIES FROM AMERICAN HISTORY, to be the best of them all. As with all of Lamb's books, the list of contributing writers reads like a Hall of Fame roster.

This volume is divided into nine different time periods. Each one covers not just historic and political events, but also offers pieces on social events, biographic profiles and more. For example, in the chapter on the Gilded Age, you will find an essay on the building of Central Park, the first Transcontinental Railroad, the political career of Grover Cleveland, historian H. W. Brands on the events of the 1890's, a look at William Randolph Hearst and the rise of "yellow journalism" (so named for Hearst's introduction of one of the first colorized print cartoons, "The Yellow Kid"), and concludes with an essay on J.P. Morgan and the banking industry.

This is a wonderful addition to your library and critical for home-schoolers. The writing is superb and unbiased, allowing the reader to form their own conclusions to events of American History. This volume concludes with 23 pages of a complete list of C-SPAN Booknotes, where you are sure to find more to add to your reading list.

Brian Lamb is the greatest interviewer of authors I have ever observed. He asks pointed, non-judgmental questions, allowing the author to answer without interruption.

As he penned: men are ambitious, vindictive, and rapacious. Think about what is happening in our nations Capitol today and see if you don't agree with our founders concerns

Booknotes was always an interesting program. I confess that I only watched it occasionally. As a lover of American history, these short and higly readable summaries or commentaries are thought-provoking and often full of new insights. The authors are frequently scholars but sometimes contemporaries or participants in historical events themselves. This has become a favorite book!

Lamb is just great at this kind of compilation. A great take-along or for kids who show an interest in American history.

Love this book!
This is an excellent book. There are about eighty American History topics covered. The selection of topics is very wide and all interesting pieces of how this country got to this place. The book is a collection of paraphrased interviews of authors. You get a good thumb nail view of all of the books. There is a wealth of information, macro and micro, on all of the topics. It was fun, interesting and long. Because it is history it is not dated but it does not cover recent events after late 2001.
