Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having become interested in family genealogy, and having been born and raised in Arkansas, I wanted to refresh my memory of Arkansas history to supplement my genealogical research.

This book is written by history professors I had at UALR back in the mid-70s. So it was an opportunity to see their scholarship outside the classroom.

I have not been disappointed. The book provides a solid review of the intricate and colorful aspects of Arkansas history.

I can recommend this book without reservation.

Book Review: A Documentary History of Arkansas

Williams, C. F., S. C. Bolton, Carl H. Moneyhon, and LeRoy T. Williams, eds. A Documentary History of Arkansas. Fayetteville: University of Arkansas, 2005. Print.

I picked up A Documentary History of Arkansas in hopes that it would aid my research on the Reconstruction Period in Arkansas. It was during this time that the Brooks-Baxter War took place, a historical event which I am attempting to study from a federal-state interactions perspective. In this book, C. Fred Williams, S. Charles Bolton, Carl H. Moneyhon, and LeRoy T. Williams, all professors at the University of Arkansas, assemble a collection of primary sources designed to be a "behind the scenes look" at the history of the state of Arkansas via first-hand accounts. Over the course of nine chapters, the editors cover Arkansas's history from its earliest exploration by Europeans in the 1600s to its contemporary history as recent as the 1980s. The documents were collected largely from the large stores of primary documents being preserved by the University of Arkansas, as well as a number of publications such as the Arkansas Gazette. The work was extremely useful to my research. The information is reliable, being compiled by experts in Arkansas history and being rooted largely in primary sources. Its largest fault is its currency; with no new content since 1984, despite its republication since then. This has no bearing on its relevance to older historical events however. Each historical period is organized with a brief introductory essay by one of the editors, written to act as starting points to provide context to the primary sources assembled thereafter.
