This review is from: The Limits of Liberty: American History 1607-1992 (Short Oxford History of the Modern World) (Paperback)
As a third year student of history, I have done several modules on American history, including the colonial period, the struggle for Independence, the American Civil War,and 20th century American history, including the Presidential terms of Franklin D. Roosevelt,Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon, for every module I have had a companion, and that is Maldwyn Jones' Limits of Liberty. Recommended in my first year by my course leader, this is essentially a text book. Jones does not go into significant depths with his book, he provides the facts,he tells what happened and tells the reader why. He does not offer controversial analysis, because this is not what the book is intended to provide, Jones has the task of educating the reader, providing an introduction to all aspects of general American history between 1607 and 1992. Utilising the book, the reader will obtain a good understanding of each area, which is nicely broken down into separate sections, helping the reader in terms of making it easy to read. Focused on the student, and the newcomer, not the expert, The Limits of Liberty provides an excellent starting ground for anyone who is new to general American history.
