Essential Documents of American History, Volume II - Dover Publications

Omschrijving

From Reconstruction to the Twenty-first Century

This compact volume offers a broad selection of the most important documents in American history: the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which ratified women's right to vote; the Supreme Court's decision on Brown v. Board of Education; and the "Heroism and Horror" portion of the 9/11 Commission Report; as well as presidential speeches, Acts and Declarations of Congress, essays, letters, and much more.
The compilation of more than 70 documents opens with nineteenth-century speeches by Red Cloud ("The Great Spirit Made Us Both") and Chief Joseph ("I Will Fight No More Forever") and concludes with the election night speech by Senator Barack Obama on November 4, 2008. Many of the selections recapture the voices of great Americans, from Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech to Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1941 "The Four Freedoms" State of the Union Message, the Apollo 11 astronaut narratives from the moon, and addresses by Susan B. Anthony, John Muir, Margaret Sanger, William Jennings Bryan, and many others. Brief introductions to each document place the works in historical context.
