Review quote

"The writing is the best I have seen in a textbook. One of the goals in my courses is to teach students how to write effectively, concisely, and forcefully. The authors' writing is simple, to the point, and utterly engaging. It is the way I want my students to write." - Larissa J. Taylor, Colby College "This text will serve me well. It is written clearly and compactly and does an admirable job of addressing some issues, such as race and feminist concerns, that are typically added onto other texts." - Sean Moran, Oakland University "What makes this text readable is the extent to which interpretive issues are interwoven with facts. Textbooks that are hard to read cram a lot of information into a condensed space without helping students think about what they are learning. This book avoids that problem and is a good match for my students." - Laurel Carrington, St. Olaf College "The Larger Issues are perhaps the most interesting way of beginning a text that I have ever seen." - James Halverson, Judson Collegeshow more
