Review quote

"The authors of this volume... do readers a great service by emphasizing the importance of original source material rather than their own interpretation of it. They provide a context for each selection and offer some opinion--why the piece is significant--but generally the reader is given the opportunity to form his or her own thoughts... A fascinating cultural document and a great addition to any general collection." --Booklist (starred review)show more
