In Short History of the United States, Robert V. Remini explores the arrival and migration of Native Americans throughout the Western Hemisphere and their achievements; the discovery of the New World by Europeans and the establishment of colonies by the Spanish, French, English, and Dutch; the causes of the American Revolution; the founding of a republic under the Constitution; the formation of political parties; the War of 1812 and the resulting economic and cultural changes; the democratic impetus during the Jacksonian era; westward expansion and the Mexican War; the struggle over slavery, which led to the Civil War; Reconstruction and the rise of big business; the emergence of the United States as a world power; the descent into the Great Depression; the global conflicts of the twentieth century; the rise of conservatism; and the outbreak of terrorism here and abroad. In addition, Remini illustrates how former English subjects slowly transformed themselves into Americans, and shows how a collection of sovereign, independent colonies united to create a workable, constantly evolving republican government whose democratic principles reflect the changing mores and attitudes of the citizens it represents. He explains the reasons for the nation's unique and enduring strengths, its artistic and cultural accomplishments, its genius in developing new products to sell to the world, and its abiding commitment to individual freedoms--From publisher description.… (lisätietoja)

Franklin Pierce was not even mentioned in this book.
It is a great history book because while it is quite inclusive it is very concise. It was a very unbiased view of the events. A history writer must necessarily try to connect events with events and this requires judgments. It was a very balanced presentation. There are always many lessons from history. A profound one is the need for the electorate to be more informed, more aware of how events are connected to events (study history) and to be less focused on personality and more on principles/policy. No human endeavor will be perfect or result in its intended effect. That is proven by this book. If people in governance could share their perspectives (listening and understanding are a part of that), find solutions, educate the public about the compromises necessary for solutions, and then enact them in that same spirit of common purpose, everything would work better. Governance never works when it empowers the few at the expense of the many. It was on this basis that this experiment in government was created from the 1760's to the 1790's. The battle to progress to more freedom, more justice, more fairness continues and history tells us there is always greed, selfishness, and fear to overcome before overcoming the next hurdle. ( )

Robert Remini is an expert on internal American politics of the 19th Century, and it shows. I learned a lot about the interesting power struggle between president and Congress, shortly after the creation of the United States and well into the period before the Civil War. But that's it: the pre-US-period and especially the post-World-War 2 period are handled in a really superficial way (there's even nothing on the presidency of J.F. Kenndy!). And then again, the years from 1970 up until 2008 are again treated in detail. In short: an unbalanced book, also by its stress on institutional debates. And then there some pretty nasty comments on indian mentality, on president Jimmy Carter and on the moral permessivity of the sixties and seventies. Definitely not recommended. ( )
