Inhaltsangabe: In this revised, expanded, and updated second edition, Paul Swendson - in a series of comprehensive essays - puts into written form what he has spent more than thirteen years doing as a community college history instructor: making American history ?manageable, meaningful, and relevant? for everyday people. In addition to breaking down the fundamental topics of American history in a concise, easy to read fashion, this is a work of political and social commentary, relating the experiences, struggles, and decisions of past Americans to life in the United States today. As stated in the book?s introductory essay: ?If history teachers ? and historians for that matter ? make no effort to draw lessons from the data and to bring the facts to life, then we are merely engaged in a trivia exercise.? The goal of this book, like all good history teaching and writing, is to help its readers become a little wiser, and raising the essential questions is often more important than providing the ?right? answers.
Über den Autor: Paul Swendson has been a history instructor for more than twenty years, working at the community college level since 2001. Since January of 2010, he has published hundreds online articles on various topics that have reached tens of thousands of readers. He lives and works in Southern California.
