Review:The eleven volumes of History of US create an added dimension to United States history from pre-colonial times to present day. In each volume chapters are well organized chronologically. Illustrations from the period, dates, key historical figures and geographical development of the country are included. Hakim adds to American history studies by including material that illustrates daily life, social attitudes, contemporary concerns and dilemmas, political climate and trivia. Using sidebars Hakim raises questions to stimulate an analysis of how the facts presented as they relate to various aspects of history. An index, a timeline and definitions are available for each volume.
