Grade 5-8–How did America become the nation it is today? The authors do not sugarcoat its use of might to expand and conquer. The first title discusses the War of 1812 as well as the annexation of Spanish Florida. Crossing examines challenges to the British Empire and the 1898 war with Spain that made the U.S. an imperialistic nation, including the annexation of Hawaii. The third book begins with World War I, discusses the Depression, World War II and the U.S.'s emergence as a world power, and its status today as the only superpower. (It should be noted that Benjamin Harrison, not Benjamin Hayes, was president of the United States.) The books include discussions of the cultures of the people conquered by the U.S., including America's indigenous population. A profusion of black-and-white and color photographs, illustrations, and maps combine to produce pages that are sure to hook readers. The introduction is the same in all three titles. These books will be useful to social-studies teachers and important additions to history collections.–Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL
