Massive and accessible collection of American documents... ( )
  Brightman | Jan 15, 2019 |
Peter Keller, president of polling company YouGov has chosen to discuss Erik Bruun and Jay Crosby's Our Nation’s Archive: A History of the United States in Documents, on FiveBooks as one of the top five on his subject - British Democracy, saying that:

"I fell in love with this huge volume because it contains the story of the United States in documents. As well as the obvious things – the Gettysburg address, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, John F Kennedy’s speeches and those of Martin Luther King – it has the words to ‘Brother can you spare a dime’ and ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy’. It has Atticus’s speech to the jury from To Kill a Mockingbird. It is done chronologically with a little introduction to each item so that you can see it in context.."
