Democracy: An Opposing Viewpoints Guide (Writing the Critical Essay)

Throughout history, people have engaged in heated debates over controversial issues. Each title in The History of Issues series shows how arguments have both changed and remained constant over time, proving the old adage that "the more things change the more they stay the same." Each anthology in the series contains a wide range of primary documents-including speeches, court cases, personal reflections, and newspaper accounts-that bring controversies from previous eras to life. Essays by historians and modern scholars add background and insight. An annotated table of contents, chronology of key events, and thorough index facilitate quick reference. An extensive bibliography and list of organizations to contact offer avenues for further research. All of these features combine to provide a unique historical perspective on issues that continue to spark intense debate. [SOURCE: Barnes and Noble]
