​Retrieving the American Past (RTAP) lets you select chapters from best-selling Pearson textbooks and more than 105 topical reading units written or commissioned by the History Department of the Ohio State University to create your perfect book.

Each topical reading unit focuses on a specific topic in American history, and includes standalone sections of primary and secondary source readings that you can choose individually, or together, to create a reader that matches your course objectives exactly!

In addition, up to 20% of your custom RTAP book can be your own writing, course notes, or syllabi, or copyrighted material from other publishers. We handle all permissions.
