Buying the Required Textbook
If you look at this information and still have a question, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This link covers:
This information should help you buy a book you can use for class.
1. In the History Department, we require a specific textbook. In this course, you use that specific textbook in your work, and I use it when I grade your work.
That specific textbook is:
Edward Ayers, Lewis Gould, David Oshinsky, and Jean Soderlund. American Passages: A History of the United States. 4th edition. The ISBN for the current 4th edition in paperback is ISBN: 9780547166469.
3. The above is all you need to know:
a. If you are going to buy that specific ISBN
b. Or if
you are going to buy that textbook at the WCJC online bookstore or at one of
the WCJC campus bookstores.
You can get to the online bookstore from
the link from several places at WCJC’s website. As of 7/31/2014, this link
was also accurate:
If you are not going to do either of those things, then you need to use the information at the bottom of this webpage so you have a book you can use.
· Buying used is great. The cheapest purchase seems to be a used 2nd edition paperback. - If you do buy over the Internet, you need be sure it can arrive in time for you to work in class. We will use it immediately in our work.
· Borrowing from a relative or friend is even better as long as you have reliable, consistent access.
· If you are near a library that has this textbook, using it in the library is very fine as long as you plan ahead.
I know what it is like to have to squeeze money to stay in school. This information is for you if you want to save money on the textbook BUT get the specific textbook you need for class.
There are so many possible ISBNs that can work for you that I gave up on listing them. If you buy a book on your own, you MUST follow these guidelines:
On the other hand, you MUST NOT use what the publisher calls the BRIEF, 4th edition. It has only 30 chapters. It has compressed and rearranged the content of several chapters and now has 2 fewer chapters than the other editions. The content that is eliminated includes sections used for written assignments in the first time period that we cover.
You cannot use it in any of its forms:
· Do NOT buy ISBN: 978-0-495-90921-7 (Chapters 1-30)
· Do NOT buy ISBN: 978-0-495-91520-1, Volume I: To 1877 (Chapters 1-15)
· Do NOT buy ISBN: 978-0-495-91521-8, Volume II: Since 1865 (Chapters 15-30)
