An excellent part of a great series,
This review is from: The Limits of Liberty: American History 1607-1992 (Short Oxford History of the Modern World) (Paperback)
I stumbled across this book only after having delighted in Bonney's European Dynastic States. Jones' narrative and analysis of the general trends in American history in this publication is concise yet informative, covering things in just enough detail to get a feel for each period, and broad enough to allow easy comprehension of the story as a whole. I strongly recommend this book as a survey both as an introduction for those with academic intentions as well as human interest reading. Another great book in the Oxford History of the Modern World series.
