Imbued with "you are there" excitement, this provocative two-volume set challenges students to read short articles on situations or events, answer focused questions, pick courses of action from options given (or devise others), then explain their decisions.
Sample topics: Iroquois Confederation, Britain’s tax on tea, Madison and the Bill of Rights, slave revolts, heading West on the Oregon Trail, secession, punishing the South, going to war in 1917, the Cuba question, dropping the atomic bomb, legalizing abortion, and gun control.
