About the Author

Eric Foner is the preeminent historian of his generation, highly respected by historians of every stripe-whether they specialize in political history or social history. His books have won the top awards in the profession, and he has been president of both major history organizations: the American Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians. He has worked on every detail of Give Me Liberty!, which displays all of his trademark strengths as a scholar, teacher, and writer. A specialist on the Civil War/Reconstruction period, he regularly teaches the nineteenth-century survey at Columbia University, where he is DeWitt Clinton Professor of History. In 2011, Foner's The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery won the Pulitzer Prize in History, the Bancroft Prize, and the Lincoln Prize.

Focus on Freedom 6 April 2014
By Greg, the Cleaner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're reading this, you probably don't have a choice on whether or not you want to buy this book. So let me give you a couple reasons why you should actually read this:

+The focus of this book isn't just on telling the story of how we came to be, it focuses on freedom and how our notion of freedom has changed through the ages

+SO well written. Reads similar to a novel and is easy to follow along with.

+Glossy, lay-flat design makes it perfect for highlighting and reading. The quality of the book is superb.

+Did I mention this was well written? I'm halfway through the semester and have actually read all 5 chapters so far. It's an amazing book with an amazing author

+Doesn't simply tell the story. You probably already know how Christopher Columbus was a terrible man. This instead has little to say about Columbus, even less to say about the Pilgrims. It's truthful to what our history as Americans is. Over 80% of the people who landed in Jamestown died in the first year from harsh conditions. We were so desperate that we stole food from Powhatan.

+Truly tells the story of how rough things were for the colonists. Absolutely real and not sugar coated like most high-school or college books. Foner tells it as it was!

I can't say enough good things about the author and the book 3 Jan. 2015
By Jenrus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Despite the fact that this was a class requirement, I can't say enough good things about the author and the book. My only challenge was taking notes, because every paragraph is relevant. If you want to know what happened at a specific time period in our nation's history, and retain it, and understand how it connects to the before and after, get this book and treasure it.

By Seraphina Holder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is so interesting. I enjoy reading "Give Me Liberty" and exploring America's road to freedom. I will recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in learning about America's History. The timeline feature is very helpful. I have one concern, however. Because America's history is a new subject for me, when the author fast forward and rewind through the events, as he explains or draws reference from other events in the book, I am taken back and have to reread to decipher the tangles.

I bought this for my university history course and I have enjoyed it. It provides a very neutral bias that I find helpful especially with history.
