Some of the paragraphs the text size is smaller then others for not apparent reason.
I don’t know if there is way to fix that but, if possible please try.
It would be fantastic if there were instructor resources (quiz questions, etc.) available as well.
The book cannot teach for you, its not meant for that.
It would be useful to include in the primary sources for Chapter 6, the US Constitution, since so much of that chapter is dedicated to that document. It would also be nice to include a selection from The Federalist Papers so students can understand the framing of the debate over the Constitution. Given the polarized nature of the electorate today, perhaps Federalist 10 would serve the purpose.
It would be great if you could highlight the text and underline it, as if it were a real textbook. Having a toolbar that allows you to take notes like you do in a physical book would be utterly helpful.
Where are the page numbers? I am using the online text for class, and we are asked to site directly from the text. However, unless I am missing something, the online text does not have a convenient way to find the page numbers.
It would be wonderful to have text-to-speech function for the text and textual sources. Many of my students commute, are ESL, or have other accessibility issues. Also, they would learn pronunciations, as well.

With the introduction of Malcolm X already as “the late Malcolm X” it would be helpful to give birth and death dates immediately in parentheses after his name, or at least add something like “Prior to his assassination in 1965” in place of “prior to his death.”

Misleading first 2 sentences, the Nationalists were also engaged with fighting the CPC during 1935-1936 which was why they were in dire need of people and supplies following the Long March in Shaanxi in the first place. Additionally, phrasing of “stubborn communist insurgency” downplays the many violent purges Chiang Kai-shek carried out during the White Terror to eliminate communist threats. Overall the way this paragraph is written inaccurately portrays the sides of the Civil War with the KMT in an overly glorified light as some sort of hero being subverted by the Communists. This is particularly apparent with the introduction “As Chinese Nationalists fought for survival, the Communist Party was…” Paragraph should be rewritten to not portray either side in a biased way.

Oversimplified, the Nationalists were still pursuing the Communists until Chiang Kai-shek was kidnapped by his generals and forced to establish an alliance during the Xi’an incident in 1936 to recognize Japan as the ultimate threat.
