Reading the American Past is a succinct collection of primary sources that supplements the major topics and themes covered in class, and it provides students with a good starting point for working with primary documents. The selections allow for discussion on a range of topics but do not slight some of the key documents with which students should be familiar in their study of American history.”
— Tonia M. Compton, Columbia College
 
“This is an excellent document reader, appropriate for use by a wide range of American history survey students. I can think of no better reader for teaching students the skills necessary for interpreting the past.”
— Luke E. Harlow, Oakland University 
 
Reading the American Past anticipates all the readings you would want for an introductory course. It balances politics and foreign policy with an excellent selection of social and cultural documents.”
— Jeffrey P. Moran, University of Kansas
