"Use this for serious research on the time period." - Library Media Connection
". . . all of the essays are well written and will help deepen the average undergraduate's understanding of this period of history. Students will also benefit from a chronology, a glossary, a bibliography, selected primary documents, and a comprehensive index. Those libraries who have already committed to the series or who are collecting heavily in U.S. social history will want to add Jacksonian and Antebellum Age: People and Perspectives to their collection." - ARBA
"Serious effort was made to match the coverage of these volumes to high school curriculum standards. This set is perfect historical analysis beyond the textbook. Each volume is carefully researched and documented. The thoughtful essays, presenting content unavailable in other sources, are ripe for analysis by upper level students. Our AP US History teacher was thrilled to see them! Books contain black and white illustrations. Brief biographies are scattered through the text. Highly recommended.'
