From School Library Journal:

ea. vol: photogs. reprods. index. (American Values First Bks.) CIP. Watts. Sept. 1985. PLB $9.40. Grade 4-6 Cheney gives a thorough presentation of the rights and responsibilities in a democracy. He begins with a definition of the various kinds of responsibilities and the importance of exercising them. The historical basis of democracy is presented chronologically from Locke and Hammurabi to a citizen's responsibility to pay taxes. Other responsibilities discussed are casting an informed vote, working to improve one's community and contributing to improving the conditions of less fortunate people worldwide. The evolvement and struggle for Equality is the focus of the second title. A chronological account is presented, beginning with the Magna Charta and continuing through the Civil War, the civil rights movement, the struggle for women's rights and the struggle by Hispanics, Native Americans, the elderly and the handicapped for full access to equality under the law. Both books deal with events that occurred as late as 1984, but there is no mention of the recent influx of Asian immigrants into the United States in Equality. Overall, the presentations are adequate, the writing dull. Functional for reports. Zenata W. Pierre, Portland Public Schools, Oreg.
