"An indispensable contribution to the understanding of our heritage." - Robert A. Caro

"This insightful collection will fascinate, delight, and challenge all who are interested in the progress of the American nation."--Annette Gordon-Reed

Here, in a single volume, are the documents (speeches, letters, tweets, Supreme Court decisions, and more) that have forged American history. This 11th edition is now updated with a new chapter on the COVID-19 pandemic, the January 6, 2021 insurrection, and the Biden presidency.

- The Declaration of Independence
- The Constitution of the United States
- Frederick Douglass' "What, to the Slave, is the Fourth of July?"
- The Monroe Doctrine
- The Emancipation Proclamation
- Woodrow Wilson's War Message to Congress

- The National Organization for Women (NOW) Statement of Purpose
- Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Decision
- Documents related to September 11 and the Iraq War
