The most extensive and varied collection of primary sources available.

For the Record: A Documentary History features nearly 250 primary source selections, both textual and visual, drawn from a broad range of government documents, newspapers, speeches, letters, novels, and images. A revised table of contents reflects the structure, organization, and emphasis on the culture of daily life found within America: A Narrative History, Tenth Edition, for which editor David Shi also serves as the author. The Sixth Edition’s selections are heavily informed by instructor feedback, resulting in a text rich with the pieces that historians prefer to assign, and, at just $10 net additional per volume when packaged with any edition of America, For the Record is available at an unbeatable value.
