Review:

The New York Public Library's fine volume on American history is both scholarly and easy to use. The history is divided into topical chapters ("Territorial Expansion," "Immigration and Minorities," "Military History," and so on), wherein each subject is treated chronologically and comprehensively within its boundaries. "Indigenous Peoples," for example, covers their history from the last great ice age to the 1989 court case of Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians v. Holyfield, and is followed by an explanation of Indian religion and a short biography of Native Americans in American history. A variety of subjects get the same full treatment. This excellent reference book provides you with detailed and chronological views of religion and science, as well as a unique perspective on American culture.
