Narrator Keith Sellon-Wright brings a workmanlike approach to his narration of this brief and balanced guide by Canadian historian Andrew Preston. Preston's writing is well ordered, if dry. Sellon-Wright does little to lift it from the page even when the author describes potentially dramatic challenges in international relations as the U.S. moved from a colony to a republic, from isolationism to superpower. The work itself is worth the engaged politics watcher's attention and consideration but is better experienced in print. A more varied narration would have made better listening.
