"A Comparison of the African American Presence in an Early and Later American History Textbook, uses content analysis of texts to alert readers to the omission and distortion of the history of African-Americans, in the hope that this practice will motivate readers to help change this unfair practice. This will be an important and useful book to teachers and curriculum committees, and will assist them in planning more effectively and efficiently for students."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
