Interesting collection of primary documents dealing with New Jersey history from the Lenni Lenape settlement up til Governor McGreevey's resignation. The intros to the documents are well written and thought out, and readers can learn how individual incidents tie into broad national social and political trends. Valuable for anyone teaching history in New Jersey schools.
