Making a Nation, The U.S. And Its People, Boydston, Jeanne, et al.
1 Boydston, Jeanne, et al. Making a Nation, The U.S. And Its People
Pearson (Prentice Hall) 2004 13-111454-9. (?) First Combined Edition. Large Soft Cover (9" x 6"). About Fine. 
768 pages with an Appendix, Bibliography. Photo Credits and an Index. A list of Maps are at the front of the volume. White glossy paper. Tight binding. Contains: A CD at the back of the book. It's a well put together book but how accurate it is I'm not certain as it's an American publication about America and it's always necessary to have other books about the same subject which are written in other countries to act as a comparison. Sorry, but this is how one does History as books tend to be biased, depending on the Authors. Go to University and you'll find this out for yourself. No flag thumpers, please. Note: It's a very heavy book and will require extra postage. As the saying goes, it's "weighty matter" to think about. 004839
