From Booklist:

This entry in the American Experience series updates a volume published in 2002 as part of the Eyewitness History series. Each chronological chapter (“The Colonies Expand,” “After Ellis Island”) contains a narrative, a chronology of key events, and a selection of excerpts from speeches, newspaper articles, correspondence, and more. Primary source documents, mostly having to do with legislation, are contained in an appendix, as are brief biographical profiles, maps, and tables and graphs. The volume concludes with a bibliography and an index. --Mary Ellen Quinn
