Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I chose this book to teach a course in American Culture and History at the university level – and I don’t regret doing so.

It offers an interesting point of view on American history, very accessible, weaving together culture and history. Chapters are split by theme, and therefore it is easy to organize a course around this. In my country, the university term covilization split into 12 weeks, which is easily compatible with the organization of this book.

American Civilization

Nice illustrations and the list of terms at the end of each chapter is helpful. It is great that the publisher has a page where you can view the topics, chapter by chapter, and you can find websites with more information about each topic.

There are also film recommendations, and I had my students watch some of the recommended films to compliment the topics covered each week. Just 2 issues that cost the publication minus 2 stars in my review: What I miss are some topics that seem so significant in American history. There is no actual coverage on the War for Independence or the Civil War. They are mentioned, yes, but just in a sort of “passing-by. I had already bought the paperback edition, but because I teach the book, I decided to buy the Kindle edition as well.

I copied-pasted, copied-pasted, and then suddenly a message: Now, I have a Kindle edition that is useless to me because I have the paperback, anyway. I bought the book twice. The text is mostly ok despite despite minor nonsense but I will eventually finish reading it and started to read it today. I would not recommend using it to teach the history of American Civilization at a university level. You need to work a lot with the text if you are going to fully understand the book and use it for something like an English exam.
