From the Back Cover:

  • Authors Cheryl Martin and Mark Wasserman have carefully selected sources intended to help students see how historians go about their work despite the limitations of available evidence and the challenges of interpreting what we do have.  
  • This reader gathers classic documents published in many languages that are well known to specialists in the field along with documents that have only recently come to light. 
    • Some of the documents appear here in English translation for the first time.
  • Each chapter focuses on a particular time and place, giving a sampling of the sources that might help in reconstructing the lives and thoughts of people living in that historical context.
