Summary
Each volume in the "At Issue in History series is an anthology that focuses on a controversial historical topic. At offshoot of Greenhaven's acclaimed "At Issue series focusing on current social issues, this series provides primary and secondary sources to explore and investigate the various opinions offered on each topic. History comes to life as the reader is exposed to the voices of those who participated in and witnessed the dramatic events of the past. More recent writings by historians and other scholars examine events with the benefit of hindsight, illuminating both the heroism and egregious errors of history makers
