Filled with primary sources, teh Sourcebook and Index traces the gradual unfolding of ideas of freedom in America through letters, declarations, proclamations, court decisions, speeches, laws, acts, the Constitution, and other writings.

Updated with a complete listing of the constitutional amendments and a listing of the presidents with key information about them, the Sourcebook and Index is arranged chronologically, beginning with the Magna Carta. Each document is introduced and placed in historical context. Difficult vocabulary is defined in the margins along with explanatory notes and commentary that aids in understanding the meaning and historical importance of each document. Neatly cross-referenced with key sections of A History of US, the Sourcebook and Index is an easy-to-use collection of the documents most essential to understanding American history.
