Basic Documents in American History by Richard Brandon Morris
Timely and timeless, these basic documents are designed to remind us of the durable qualities of American values and traditions, and how adaptable they are to a changing world. This concise collection forcibly demonstrates that national growth and prosperity have been achieved in the face of honest and persistent differences of opinion over policy, both domestic and foreign. Included are Supreme Court decisions banning segregation of races in public schools, and President Kennedy's proclamation of a quarantine of offensive weapons to Cuba.
