Robert McDonald: Reviewing BRI’s New Textbook | BRI Scholar Talks

BRI Senior Teaching Fellow Tony Williams sits down with Robert McDonald, professor of
history at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and author of Confounding Father:
Thomas Jefferson's Image in His Own Time among other impressive works, to discuss
McDonald's experience reviewing BRI's entire digital textbook, Life, Liberty, and the
Pursuit of Happiness. He'll explain what drew him to the project and the many reasons
why this textbook stands out from others. With a rich range of voices from historical
figures and modern-day historians, the textbook will engage students on a number of levels.
