Never Before in History

PDF Frankly turned off by the title ("Never Before in History"— smacks of the myth of American exceptionalism) and generally unaccustomed to reading high school textbooks, I might well have hestitated to open this book. This would have been to my great loss, because this is easily the best thing I have read so far this year. In fact, I was amazed to find that among all of the reading I've done while completing undergraduate and graduate degrees in American history this book ranks as the best work I have ever read on the colonial and revolutionary periods. Simply masterful from start to finish, Gardiner and Amos artfully fashion a wonderful portrait of the genesis of our nation. Leaving aside the superficial and the cliche so characteristic of such works, the authors penetrate to the roots of the American experience and gently expose and deflate a whole lot of bloated revisionists history in the process. This book will revolutionize its readers understanding of the origins of America. Beware, this book will have the unintended result of getting you angry at your high school and college history teachers- you'll feel certain that they either lied or were criminally ignorant. My advice: buy this book and read it. Then buy a copy for your favorite teenager and bribe him or her to read it too. This is one of those rare books that reminds me of why reading is so wonderful. I just can not conceive of a better written, more thoughtfully crafted, better illustatrated or packaged book of its kind.
