Historic Documents of 2010

August 2011 | 776 pages | CQ Press
A comprehensive reference packed with primary source materials

The Historic Documents series makes primary source research easy by presenting in one volume key excerpts from documents about the important events of each year for the United States and the world. Each volume includes approximately 70 events with over 100 documents from the previous year, from official or other influential reports and surveys, to speeches from leaders and opinion makers, to court cases, legislation, testimony, and much more.

Historic Documents is renowned for the well written and informative background, history, and context it provides for each document. Each volume begins with an insightful essay that sets the year's events in context, and each document is preceded by a comprehensive introduction that provides background information on the event. Full-source citations are provided, and links to Web addresses containing complete documents are given, if available. Readers have easy access to material through a detailed, thematic table of contents and a cumulative five-year index that directs them to related material in earlier volumes.

"The passages are excerpted from a variety of sources, including the White House, Congress, and other U.S. and international governmental and nongovernmental organizations...Best for academic libraries and those with collections that include governmental, legal, and/or global issues holdings. Another useful volume."
