Give Me Liberty! An American History Volume One (Seagull, 3rd Edition)

by Eric Foner

Designed as a textbook for high school students taking the Advanced Placement test in history, this comprehensive history of the United States would be suitable for regular high school and freshman college US history survey courses. This is the third edition; earlier editions have been widely used in two- and four-year colleges as well as high schools. The text is written in clear, uncomplicated prose that will be easy for general high school students to understand. The book is strong in economic history. The coverage of US history provides excellent depth for a general survey. It avoids the politically-motivated deletions of information that have marred many recent K-12 textbooks in the US. When speaking of painful historical realities such as slavery or smallpox, the author adopts neutral and quiet language in the main text to help readers understand the various perspectives of the time, and allows specific, accurate historical data given in inset texts to speak for themselves about the magnitude of suffering. The book uses a contemporary tone when speaking of the politics of the past, without historicism or gimmicks; readers are alerted to the election of President Polk or the votes-for-women question as fresh news and a live issue for people of that time, exactly as our elections and issues are now. The book offers detail on recent history, ending with the Obama election. It begins with a helpful overview of both North America and Europe just before the start of US history, which gives context for early US history and the contemporary meanings of Constitutional terms like "citizen" and "liberties," which are often quite different from our own. The book is clearly organized, and well illustrated with modern maps and images from the era under study. A short section at the beginning provides an orientation to the AP history exam. Within the book, each chapter begins with a timeline and ends with a bibliography of suggested reading and websites, review questions and essay questions, key terms, and a review table. Appendices include a variety of important documents such as the Constitution, as well as tables and figures, a glossary, and an index. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)

The Security Police are searching high and low for the shop's proprietors, who've not only vanished into thin air, but have left behind sets of fingerprints that aren't in the records of any government on earth. Only one staffer is left: Gianfranco and Annarita's friend Eduardo. On the run, he comes to them with an astonishing story: he's a time trader from our own timeline, accidentally left behind when the store was evacuated. Eduardo can get back to his own timeline only if Gianfranco and Annarita will help him reach one of the other time trader sites in this world-and the Security Police will be on their tails all the way there.
