Overview

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.

I received my textbook after 2 days and still had to wait for my second, which was fine.  But on the first day of class I'm in the middle of the class and we are going through our textbooks and the professor asks us to turn to a specific page.  I do so and its not there.  I then go through the rest of the book to find more and more missing pages.  Some look as if they were never even put in the book and others look to be torn right out of the book.  Its difficult to write a paper when one of the sources are actually missing out of the book.  I realize that having rented the book that it might not be completely up to par, however I never expected to receive a book that is horribly damaged.  How does Barnes&Noble, a literature retail store, sell the use of books that are missing pages and not check them on a regular basis as to make sure this never happens.  I'm severely disappointed, however I won't return the book because I don't wanna fall behind in my 3 week course.  I truly hope that I have better service in the future.
