book cover The American Century: Recommended for High School History Classes

"Teachers looking to challenge, provoke, and inspire their students should consider adopting Harold Evans' The American Century. The writing is engaging and the argumentation astute; students can see a mind at work and a model of committed citizenship. Evans covers the sweep of his period (1889—1989) as thoroughly as any textbook, but with more passion and zest. His selection of 'great questions' for extended commentary is apt, and his reflections on specific events, accompanied by marvelous photographs, illuminate his major themes most effectively. America's role as a leader in the world; the contributions of the oppressed in preserving and enhancing American liberty; the impact of the individual in shaping society—all come to life at Evans' hand. I have used The American Century for many years with advanced high school students; no other book succeeds as well in getting students to care so much about what they are learning."
—Burke R. Rogers, Ph.D., St. George's School
