Synopsis: Presents a collection of primary and secondary documents offering varying opinions on events in American history.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up—It is easy for students to argue historical events in hindsight, but this set, a revision of the 1996 edition, will provide them with primary sources from those who debated landmark issues of their time. Topics range chronologically from "Origins of English Settlement" to "National Security, Terrorism, and Iraq." Essays, speeches, and letters by such notables as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Malcolm X, and Bill Clinton provide historical context for the debates. Articles are clustered under prefaced general categories, such as "The Gilded Age," "Antebellum America," and "New Challenges after the Cold War." "The Progressive Era" includes debates about Jim Crow, child labor, and women's right to vote. Each viewpoint has an editorial introduction that highlights the author's concerns and poses two or three questions that students might ask themselves as they read the selections. For instance, in Horace Greeley's verbose open letter to Abraham Lincoln about slavery, readers are prompted to look for Greeley's descriptions of the treatment of slaves behind Union lines. A further-reading section and, occasionally, a Web site follow each viewpoint. Each volume has a separate index. New to this edition are discussions of the most recent presidential challenges, such as terrorism, nuclear weapons, health care, and separation of church and state. An increase in the book's size and a font change are a nice facelift for this reference.—Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY
