“This is a thoughtful collection of obvious as well as less-obvious original sources that help students to gain a fuller understanding of the history recounted in the textbook. In particular, the sources that relate to individuals (whether testimony from a trial or a scene from a play) not only bring the periods, cultures and societies to life, but also help guard against the broad generalizations that first year students so commonly make.”
— Tim Stretton, St. Mary’s University
