Contending Voices, Volume I: To 1877
Publication Date 7 Oct 2015
OverviewEach chapter in CONTENDING VOICES examines the lives of two individuals, some of them familiar historical figures and some of them lesser known, who took opposing positions on important issues in American history. The 'paired biographies' in the text are followed by a set of four to six related primary sources, many in the individuals' own voices; a 'Questions to Consider' section; and an annotated bibliography. This unique format promotes critical thinking and engages students in enlightening historical debates.
