CHOICE Review

Part of a series covering each decade of the 20th century, this entry largely succeeds in its primary goal of offering an engaging text aimed at US history students. Mixing chronological and typical organization, the book provides a good balance between foreign and domestic developments, ranging from partisan politics to the diplomatic challenges posed by Mexico and Europe. Coverage generally is adequate, but stylistic and content choices do invite scrutiny. The quest for synthesis, for example, frequently eliminates complexity and nuance, as well as exploration of historiographical debate. A few of the suggested additional reading lists are noticeably small, with as few as two books. Some sections, such as the coverage of WW I battles, offer minute detail, much of it not needed to tell the basic story. Other parts, such as the postwar years, would benefit from more extensive narration. Still, the book would be a good choice for instructors--or general readers--looking for a condensed history of the US during the 1910s. Summing Up: Recommended. All public, general, and academic libraries. --Robert F. Zeidel, University of Wisconsin-Stout
