Joseph R. Conlin's text An American Past Part One: A Survey of American History to 1877 is a book I totally underappreciated while I was using it as a text in college. I've been reading the newly released A Patriot's History of the United States and while I'm fascinated, it doesn't go into the detail like Conlin's book. Why am I doing this? I'm suddenly finding myself interested in the politics of the pres Joseph R. Conlin's text An American Past Part One: A Survey.

I've used it in 10th grade high school class and now I am a junior in college. I do not know if it was the teacher or the book, but it remains as my favorite history class ever. I remember most of the materials in this book better than things I've learned from other history courses I took last semester. This book is the only textbook I still have from high school.

Fact: Author has voice
Pro:
The author is witty and makes the book interesting. The characters (historical figures) come alive and I could clearly imagine in my head Andrew Jackson in this political campaign, and Henry Clay in midst of tension between Senate & House of Reps. Makes it easier to remember the facts.
Con:
Is it a truly good thing for a history textbook to have a voice? The author seems to be biased towards certain characters more than the others and this shows since he actually lets out his voice in the book. This would make the book a good side-book to have along with another textbook, or a good read for a reader already knowledgeable about US history.
Also, because he lets his opinion sneak out in between the lines, sometimes there are too many trivial facts that may not be necessary in an intro course.

5 Stars because I absolutely love this book, even the trivial parts-- I still remember random facts from the book because they are just very interesting. I hated history before this textbook, and now I got to love it. I am now able to understand (or at least attempt to understand) the motives behind historical figures and the current & pattern in history, rather than simply memorizing dates and trial names.

I enjoyed the layout and order of delivery this book offered. This would be a great book for learning as well as brushing up on your history during this time. It brushes the events, and certain box 'bubbles,' and visuals help piece it together. Great layout and delivery. Would suggest!

I was very annoyed at how little information was in this book. I felt like my 5th history book had far more information and this is supposed to be for college students. I think the Tenn Tech program for history is a joke if this is what the state requires they use.

The textbook is accurately described. It's what I needed & it was affordable! Knowingly used condition, & absolutely readable & useable.

This book arrived very fast. The condition is very good. There's just a few highlighting marks, but that doesn't bother me. I'm very happy with this price compared to my college bookstore.

I am very pleased with product I recieved. It was in optimal condition, and I recieved it quickly. Being a student and mother of four children on a budget, this was very important to me. So thanks.
