Reviews

"[Volume 2] will leave readers with considerably more nuanced views of this country's past...and present...Scary, sobering stuff."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Detailed, ambitious, and opinionated, this engaging narrative lays out a view of U.S. history often overlooked in standard texts and deserves a place on most library shelves."-- "School Library Journal"
