Explore 2014 through its primary sources in: Historic Documents of 2014

July 23, 2015

Washington, DC. From the rise of the militant group ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), and the outbreak of Ebola that caused international alarm, to the Affordable Care Act’s birth control mandate, 2014 was full of newsworthy events. In keeping with the tradition of more than 40 years of the Historic Documents series, Historic Documents of 2014 from CQ Press brings together all of the year’s major events into a single volume with a wide range of primary source documents, from reports and surveys to speeches from leaders and opinion makers, to court cases, legislation, and testimony.

Allowing students, librarians, journalists, scholars, and others to research and understand the most important domestic and foreign issues and events of the year through primary source documents, Historic Documents of 2014 covers approximately 70 key events from the United States and the world, featuring over 100 documents such as reports and surveys, speeches from leaders and opinion makers, court cases, legislation, and testimony from 2014. Also included are a List of Document Sources, a Preface, How to Use This Book section, and an Overview of 2014, as well as a Thematic Table of Contents, which is searchable in these key subject areas:

  • American Life
  • Business, the Economy, and Labor
  • Energy, Environment, Science, Technology, and Transportation
  • Government and Politics
  • Health and Social Services
  • International Affairs
  • National Security and Terrorism
  • Rights, Responsibilities, and Justice

With its well-written and informative background narratives, careful document excerpting, and numerous other helps, the Historic Documents series, now containing over 40 years of documents, makes primary source research easy. Like all the others in the series, Historic Documents of 2014 will serve as an essential resource for students, professional researchers, and interested citizens at academic, public, and school libraries everywhere.
