Reviews - What do our customers think?
An excellent, balanced introduction to thinking about history  May 23, 2007
I came across this valuable little book by way of a recommendation, and have been most pleased. As a first-year graduate student (albeit in European history) I was searching for ways of thinking about "doing" history. McClay offers many insights delivered in thoughtful, reasoned, and balanced prose. Although his focus is American history, I believe students of any field of history might benefit from his ideas. His central conceit consists of metaphorical "windows," or themes, through which American history is to be viewed. These serve to guide students in thinking about the key issues that our country has faced since its founding.

The book has its limits, of course. It is an introduction, so do not expect an in-depth discussion of historiography or methodology. As well, his audience appears to be the underclassmen of college or upper-level high school students, more than graduate students.

While McClay is a political and ideological conservative (the book is published by ISI), he does not, to my thinking, let this bias him to a negative degree. He is seeking to teach students to think honestly and rationally about their nation's past and what that means for the present and the future.

I have returned to this book on more than one occasion throughout my graduate studies and will no doubt do so again. If he publishes further volumes like this one, I will be first in line to buy.
McClay is an excellent teacher  Nov 27, 2003
I took two classes from Prof. McClay before I read A Student's Guide to U.S. History. I highly anticipated reading this volume since he was an excellent classroom teacher. My expections were met and then some. He is one of the best at classroom teaching and one of the best with the written word. I highly recommend this book!
great starting point or thematic overview  Nov 16, 2002
Over the past several years, the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) has published a series of guides to college studies, ranging from history and literature to the core curriculum and liberal learning more generally. In this slim volume, Professor McClay develops a framework through which we might begin to view the unique entity that is American history (and America itself). McClay laments, with some justification, the fact that students at the high school and college levels are usually taught U.S. history as a string of facts or periods; as a corrective, McClay selects a (non-exhaustive) set of themes, "windows" as he calls them, which undergird the discipline: equality, religion, liberty, nature, urbanism, the frontier, and federalism, to name but a few. It is a work neither of the philosophy of history nor of historiography; nor is it jargon-ridden or overly abstract. Rather, its simplistic treatment of the basic building blocks of American history easily serves as a solid starting point for more detailed studies of our past, not to mention the many fine books to which it refers the reader for further perusal. Indeed, this is its purpose as well as its strongest element.
