Description

Product Description

For more than twenty-five years, After the Fact has guided students through American history and the methods used to study it. In dramatic episodes that move chronologically through American history, this best-selling book examines a broad variety of topics including oral evidence, photographs, ecological data, films and television programs, church and town records, census data, and novels. Whether for an introductory survey or for a historical methods course, After the Fact is the ideal text to introduce readers, step by step, to the detective work and analytical approaches historians use when they are actually doing history.

This text is fascinating, and a wonderful read. It''s great that this book is available for rental in Kindle format for students who aren''t going to need the book very long. (IE: me.) However, the Kindle formatting for this book is really bad. The print is tiny, notes and highlighting don''t work, and I can''t access the book from my iPhone, tablet, or PC. Really, really just a disappointing production of a good text.

My students use this book in my APUSH class. I ordered the Kindle edition for my IPad. This allows me to highlight passages and add notes in preparation for a class discussion on a chapter. I hook my IPad up to my projector as part of the class discussion. The book teaches my students to understand how a historian studies history. The chapter topics are interesting and thought provoking. This is a great history book.

Intriguing
Reviewed in the United States on April 15, 2014
The book gives you insight on how history is interpreted/reviewed/looked over. It does a very through job of it. Some chapters can get very verbose (the verbosity can be confusing), but it should be no problem if you plan how to read the chapters and follow the plan.

Best Books for Understanding What happened
Reviewed in the United States on February 22, 2014
This book is well written, succinct, power-packed in every chapter. What we don''t know about history is amazing and what the new Historians are discovering now as they look at historical records. We have learned so much and there is so much more.
