Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0816049955, Hardcover)This three-volume encyclopedia brings to light many of the documents that are such a significant part of America's history. Arranged to match the 10 eras outlined in the National Standards for United States History, this collection provides not only the documents, but also the background information to help students place the documents in their historical context. In addition to important political documents, such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the collection also includes key cultural documents, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson's "American Scholar" speech, and material from President Nixon's visit with Elvis Presley. Along with the text of the documents and concise introductions to each one, Encyclopedia of American Historical Documents also provides sources for further research and a timeline to help place events in chronological order.
