Disappointed and disturbed. It only took me 5 minutes to see this book is written from a heavily modern Progressive/Communist slant, going on and on about progressivism (though true progressivism in the 1800's was a helpful ideal, not the Communist hijacked Democratic Party of today). In fact the definition this book gives Communism is a system where the people own and control everything. If you think you believe this make sure to read the Communist Manifesto and research Marx, Lenin and Stalin. It also gives suspiciously incomplete definitions of facism and socialism. There is a decidedly negative attitude towards America in this book, of course suggesting imperialism, since that is a favorite accusation of modern Progressives. Also, it states that the first Thanksgiving is a "myth." This is the revisionist history being taught in our schools. It's meant to destroy our sense of nationalism and move us into global Socialism...Communism. Do NOT take any history book first printed in this century for truth without doing research. I like Abeka history curriculum for one excellent alternative.
