Rien de neuf dans l'analyse, mais un bon exposé, un peu "americano centré"

Being an insightful look at some of the major themes of Thomas Jefferson's career and thought. Since this series is supposed to be about presidential administrations, she's off the rez a little in concentrating on Jefferson's philosophies of society and government, but given the nature of the man, it's difficult not to. In terms of the Jefferson administration, she analyzes his successful attempt to undo the Federalist template of government and bureaucracy as well as his attempts at a balanced foreign policy at a time of world war. However, her main concern is to reconcile Jefferson's philosophy of equality for all with how little he accomplished, or even seemed to try and accomplish, to advance the status of such groups as slaves, women, and Indians. She's a friendly guide who asks more questions than she dictates answers to, and the book is pleasant, informative, and thought-provoking.… (mere)

I use the Georgia version of this textbook and it is perfectly aligned with the state standards, includes common core standards, and literacy standards. Textbook is edited to fit the standards but not so much that the history is lost. A great overview of U.S. History.

I barely even know where to start with this veritable train wreck of a book. I very nearly gave up on page 17, where Appleby refers to "old lithographs" in the 1490s (lithography wasn't invented until the 1790s). But I kept reading. And the howlers kept coming. The one that finally put me over edge came on page 127 ("They burned witches in Massachusetts ..."). Between the errors, misspellings, repetitions, and other infelicities, I don't think there's much here. Milk the bibliography if you can, but otherwise, stay away from this book.… (mere)
