From Booklist:

Gr. 9^-12. Books in the Words That Changed History series examine historically significant documents and speeches in terms of their historical context and their lasting impact. In this volume, Nardo traces the activities that led to the Declaration of Independence, the writing of the document, the revisions it underwent, and the debates that swirled around it before it was formally adopted. He shows how Thomas Jefferson, the author of the initial draft, was influenced by other scholars and documents, and how his original wording was changed or deleted--as was the case with the lengthy antislavery passage--to meet the approval of the Continental Congress and the 13 colonies. Along the way, he adds enough tidbits about the times and the people involved to keep the text interesting. Black-and-white photos and drawings depict the influential leaders as well as early revolutionary activities. A solid resource for secondary students. Extensive source notes and a list of further readings are appended. Karen Hutt
