Good outline of America's violent history. If you're a history buff you may enjoy this book. If you paid attention in high school history and hated it, don't bother.

i was looking for a book to brush up on american history since i havent had it since high school (which was only about 7 years ago) and we never covered the 20th century at all. this book assumes you already know the main goings-on of history -- which i dont -- and presents a lot of incidental stories, so i didnt find it very helpful. the author does take the point of view of the underdog (the poor, the minority, the oppressed) so that was a unique take.
