I really like this book! I am a history major at Portland State University and have found this book (and the first one) very useful. It has a lot of important documents that pertain to each period of history in the United States (and a little bit of South America). I would suggest this to any teacher that wants to use ACTUAL writings from a specific period in US history. Also, I would recommend these two books, volume one and two, to anybody that is planning on doing a history research paper. These books will not only help you understand other issue(s)/people to research, but also give you a deep perspective of said time period. There is nothing that professors like more than a student who uses facts from the time period! Very well done! An absolute life saver!!!

I ordered this book for class because it was required.
I hated reading it because I am not good at reading colonial english.
but it was at least lightweight and small so it didn't take up too much room in my back pack since we had to have it for class everyday.
Cheaper on Amazon then if you buy in the school bookstore. and plus you can sell it back and get some to most of your money back (minus shipping)

Got it for a history class. I actually enjoyed reading it, the class i did not enjoy as much. I do like american history tho so i am sure it would be boring for some.

The Book seemed to be fine when i received the book but shortly after The Pages started falling out from the spine. Other than that it was ok.
