Front Cover
Barron's Educational Series, 2008 - Constitutional history - 782 pages
1 Review
This supplementary classroom text reviews American history in its totality, starting with the Colonial era and concluding with events of the twenty-first century. The book presents summaries of hundreds of key topics, maps, charts, illustrations, review exercises, a 13-page chronology of major events in American history, thumbnail biographies of notable Americans, a glossary of terms, and an extensive index. Shaded page edges give students quick access to any one of six general study units: Constitutional Foundations, Industrialization, The Progressive Movement, Prosperity and Depression (1917-1940), The United States in an Age of Global Crisis, and A World in Uncertain times (1950-Present). Also presented is the latest New York State Regents Exam with answers. Designed primarily for use in New York State high schools, this book can be used virtually everywhere because it covers topics as they are taught in secondary schools throughout the country.
