This is not a criticism but a warning against using this book as anything but an introductory text, it covers all the basics, however further reading will be essential to flesh out the skeleton structure which Foner provides. If you already have a sound basic knowledge of American history during the period covered you may benefit from buying a more detailed text and simply find this in a library where you need a refresher.
The book serves its purpose as an introduction, however when I return to studying American history I will probably not use it substantially.
Good points: This was a key book for my course and we had to read certain chaps every week and if you keep it up it really dose help to give you a good overview and you remember things much easier. Plainly written so simple to understand, covers a lot of areas and key for revision (for me one exam was multiple choice Q's based on answers in the book).
