Freedom -- A History of US, PBS


Category: History: U.S.


Joy Hakim


Copyright/published Year: 2001 by Oxford


ISBN: 0-19-515711-7


Binding: Cloth

Hakim paints an attractive and intriguing portrait of U.S. history as an ongoing quest for freedom, played out by heroic individuals from all social strata. The book is the companion volume to the 2002 PBS mini-series, and a reworking of her 10-volume A History of US. Lavishly illustrated with color and black-and-white photographsd black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and political cartoons with well-written captions, Freedom pulsates with the life and vigor of the ongoing American story. The author sees freedom as "both our legacy and our destination," and traces that continuity through the individual stories that are woven together in our history. Substantial sidebars bring specific figures to life, and the main text alternates between past and present tense, lending immediacy and drama to the telling. Beginning with the Declaration of Independence, Freedom ends with the events of September 11, 2001.
