Going to the Source, Volume 2: Since 1865: The Bedford Reader in American History / Edition 3 available in Paperback
Many document readers offer lots of sources, but only Going to the Source combines a rich diversity of primary and secondary sources with in-depth instructions for how and when to use each type of source. Mirroring the chronology of the U.S. history survey, each of the main chapters employs a single type of source — from personal letters to political cartoons — while focusing on an intriguing historical episode such as the Cherokee Removal or the 1894 Pullman Strike. A new capstone chapter in each volume prompts students to synthesize information on a single topic from a variety of source types. The wide range of topics and sources across 28 chapters — 6 of them new — provide students with all they need to become fully engaged with America’s history.
