"A variety of materials such as speeches, legislation, interviews on NPR, and magazine and newspaper articles pique interest and can lead to further research in specific areas. The lists of sources at the end, including Websites and books, will be very helpful to those wishing to do further research. This book would make an excellent addition to high school libraries, large public libraries, and academic libraries."
