Write The First Customer Review

Prior to the mid-nineteenth century, most Americans heard rather than read national history. By the 1840s, innovations in publishing led to the marketing of inexpensive, mass-produced popular histories that had a profound influence on historical literacy and learning in the United States. This book charts the rise and fall of this genre.
