Reviews

"Suitable for public libraries." --Library Journal, May 1, 2007

— Library Journal

"Also of note is a section that discusses what a primary source is, the pitfalls of using primary source, and how primary sources can be a valuable tool in academic inquiry, making this resource a useful tool for students at academic institutions. American history teachers or upper level students in secondary schools might find this volume a useful resource as well." --ARBA, March 2007
