Upon its first publication, A Different Mirror was hailed by critics and academics everywhere as a dramatic new retelling of our nation's past. Beginning with the colonization of the New World, it recounts the history of America in the voice of the non-Anglo peoples of the United States---Native Americans, African Americans, Jews, Irish Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, and others---groups who helped create this country's rich mosaic culture.

Takaki opens up American history as if you've never seen it. Each major immigrant group is traced through their immigration and then acceptance (or not) into American society. It is a great overview of the real American history. #AmericanHistory #RealTruth #Inspiriting #Tragic #LifeChanging #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
