Grade 9 Up-- These three titles present arguments from both sides of historical issues and events that have helped shape our nation. Readers are provided with background on the subjects in the introductions. Chapter prefaces and sidebars provide further information. Excerpts from speeches, articles, and books representing the opposing viewpoints are placed side by side. Biographical sketches on the author(s) and the origin of the piece precede each entry. The voices range from scholars, government officials, and military figures to common colonists and slaves. The topics in American Revolution include disputes between England and the colonies, debates over independence, the re-forming of the United States, and the meaning of the war. Cold War discusses its origins, the degree of recommended U. S. involvement, coexistence and conflict, and its culmination. Issues examined in Slavery are its establishment in early America, living conditions for those in bondage, resistance and rebellion, abolitionism, and what the government's role should have been regarding slavery. All of the volumes have extensive, annotated bibliographies and helpful, detailed indexes. --Amy Baumann, Berne Knox Westerlo High School, NY
