Full Description


This series provides primary and secondary sources to explore and investigate the various opinions offered on each topic. History comes to life as the reader is exposed to the voices of those who participated in and witnessed the dramatic events of the past. More recent writings by historians and other scholars examine events with the benefit of hindsight, illuminating both the heroism and egregious errors of history makers. This volume explores the Bill of Rights. An introductory essay sets the stage for each topic by presenting background context. Three or four chapters then examine different facets of the subject at hand. Each selection is preceded by a summary of the author's main points and conclusions.
