    I use this book as a tutor of English and find it invaluable for giving foreign students an idea of why America is the way it is The book broaches negative elements of American culture and history but does not cover them in any depth It does suggest the origins of the current contentious political environment without making judgements Each chapter has questions that confirm the student s understanding of the vocabulary and content I recommend this only for students at the upper intermediate I use this book as a tutor of English and find it invaluable for giving foreign students an idea of why America is the way it is The book broaches negative elements of American culture and history but does not cover them in any depth It does suggest the origins of the current contentious political environment without making judgements Each chapter has questions that confirm the student s understanding of the vocabulary and content I recommend this only for students at the upper intermediate level
