Specifications

Each book in the new six-volume American Rights set provides the history of a specific right or rights, from the right to vote to the right to bear arms. Students will learn to appreciate the value of these rights by reading of the battles fought to secure them and, in some cases, by learning how uniquely American they are.

"This set features wonderful extras, particularly the chronology and the appendix of excerpts from documents pertaining to American rights. The text is straightforward and easy to read...American Rights would be a fine addition to any school or public library collection."
VOYA

Summary

American democracy owes much to the rights guaranteed to individuals in the U.S. Constitution and specifically in its first 10 amendments, known as the Bill of Rights. Each book in the five-volume American Rights set provides the history of a specific right or rights. These volumes begin with brief colonial history, discussing the war fought by American Revolutionaries to gain independence from Great Britain—and their opportunity to decide what rights every American should possess. Coverage also includes later and ongoing struggles by groups such as women and people of color to gain these rights.

Students will learn to appreciate the value of these rights by reading of the battles fought to secure them and, in some cases, by learning of their relative rarity around the world. Graphs, maps, photographs, and box features enhance the lively and accessible narrative, bringing this exciting material to life.
