Synthesizing the best and most current scholarship, Through Women’s Eyes: An American History with Documents is a widely admired, ground-breaking text. The first to present a narrative of U.S. women’s history within the context of the central developments of the United States and to integrate written and visual primary sources into each chapter through its signature docutext format, it is perfect for teaching history as a dynamic process of interpretation. With its focus on women from a broad range of ethnicities, classes, religions, and regions, Through Women’s Eyes more than ever helps students understand how women are an integral part of U.S. history.

I used this book for a college course in women’s history in the US. I thought the book was very well written and documented. You’ll learn a lot about women in US history since the Civil War; multiple perspectives from many ethnic backgrounds.
Its a textbook, what more can I say… it was required for the course. It was interesting if you are interested in the history of women through the years.
