The Houghton Mifflin Harcourt US History Since 1877  textbook review is currently undergoing final review  Initially it was not on our list but TTT was requested to do a review.  While the final report is not complete, the initial review indicates levels of errors (omissions, imbalance of material presented and other factual errors) TTT elected to place an unacceptable rating on it based upon these initial findings.  Upon the final review, we will post the full report on here and give the publisher an opportunity to respond to the errors identified.
