Adams wanted a history textbook that included more favorable viewpoints about British imperialists, Confederate rebels and the importance of westward migration. However, the authors weren't reticent about inserting their own opinions throughout the textbook. For example, they commended Theodore Roosevelt for taking military control of Cuba in 1906, noting that many Cuban planters favored complete annexation by the U.S. (Topic 695) This book was part of the Allyn and Bacon Textbook Series.
