The complexities of history are often glossed over by time and hindsight. Through the use of primary documents, Greenhaven Press's Interpreting Primary Documents series presents history in all its rich complexity. Each volume in this series is an anthology of primary sources--including newspaper articles, speeches, personal reflections, letters, diaries, memoranda, and official reports--focused on a major event or development in history. The editor of each anthology has taken special care to include a diversity of views in order to illustrate the vast range of opinion on historical topics and to promote the readers' critical reading and thinking skills. An in-depth introduction sets the stage by providing essential context. Each document is then preceded by an introduction that places it in its historical context. Guided reading questions assist the reader to interpret the document and to think critically about the topic at hand. Primary documents are the raw materials from which historians refine a complete view of the past. With its many valuable features, Greenhaven Press's Interpreting Primary Documents series assists students to explore history while developing critical thinking and reading skills.
