This book was on the required list for my American History class in college. For the first time in my life I felt like I was actually reading a "text" that was interesting, and whose structure flowed like a novel. Ronald Takaki takes a huge leap as he describes our nation's history through a different set of eyes. He describes what it would have felt like to live in America as it was a fledgling country, trying to find its feet, through the eyes of Native Americans, Black, Asians, and Jews. He truly shows you that our history was not all beautiful, and that our country's growing pains were caused by our lack of accepting those neighbors that lived within our borders. Takaki takes a straightforward look at the future of our country, with frank and honest comments, without fear of sounding politcally correct. In the end, he simply writes the truth about what our country was like, to a point where any reader will feel refreshed by his explanations, and will feel as though they are hearing the truth about our country's past for the first time.
