From the early colonial days to 2003, this 5-volume set examines seminal events and challenges students to think critically about American history by presenting viewpoints of various groups and political leaders. Each entry includes a historical overview and analysis of the pro and con arguments surrounding the issue, as well as the outcome of the action taken. Fact boxes, sidebars, biographies, and excerpts from primary documents offer additional information and give students ideas for reports and projects.
