Volume 2 of a 2-volume work that uses 15 dramatic episodes in American history to show students how historians go about the business of interpreting the past.

Book Description Alfred A. Knopf: New York, U.S.A., 1982. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. New- clothbound hardcover in new- dust jacket. This is a new unread copy of this book and it looks and feels that way. However, here's the minus part: Upon closer inspection one will discover that there is a very light stain on the head, and some color bleeding from the cloth at the base of the spine into the inside of the jacket. Also, the previous owner was a collector who carefully reinforced the dust jacket with what appears to be archival tape along the interior edges to prevent shelf wear. Otherwise this is a very nice clean crisp new copy. Bookseller Inventory # 045789
