Being a product of the public school system, I have what I suspect to be a limited view of U.S. history. Grades 3-10 each started over with the Pilgrims, some may have got as far as WW2…But not beyond, certainly. As a result I’m embarassingly clueless about the 1950’s on, plus, I’m sure all my info comes from sanitized, “Yay, we’re America and we’re perfect!” text books anyway.
Can someone recommend an U.S. History book that gives a good history–complete with the good, bad, and ugly? Hopefully in one or two books (I’m not looking to read many many books…)
Thanks, everyone who responds!
