A Must-Read For Every American To Ensure Its Survival
Recently, I purchased this wonderful offering at the listed bargain-basement price from Amazon.com - and thank goodness Amazon understands the singular necessity for providing these documents that form what all Americans have believed is our We-The-People Consitutional Democracy. My concern, however, is just how many Americans today have read this - and if not, why? It is astonishing to read even ...

Wives of the Signers
Mary W. Green
wives of the signers
I loved the book. I didn't know much about the signers or their wives, so this book was very enlightening. It brings to mind and heart why we are a great nation. I do believe these men and women are the true patriots of our land. May we never forget what they did for our freedoms. I couldn't put the book down and will have to read it again. I recommend it highly.

Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
A world without children
In the year 2140, it is 60 years after the Declaration which required everyone taking Longevity, a drug that stopped aging, illness and death, to stop having children. Only those rare few who "opt out" of the drug could have children, so for the most part, the world is empty of children. Children born illegally to those on the drug are "Surplus", captured, sent to brainwashing centers where ...

The Signers: The 56 Stories Behind the Declaration of Independence
Dennis Brindell Fradin
Walker Books for Young Readers
A Tribute to 56 Heroes.....
As Dennis Brindell Fradin tells us in his illuminating introduction: "...The signers of the Declaration, rather than those who voted for independence, have long been honored as the nation's founders. That is because, by placing their names on the Declaration, they announced to the world their willingness to risk everything for the cause of independence. The British targeted the fifty-six ...

Declaration: The Nine Tumultuous Weeks When America Became Independent, May 1-July 4, 1776
Simon & Schuster
A Gripping and Surprising Portrayal
I've been a fan of William Hogeland's other books and was thus prepared to like this one too, but "like" doesn't begin to express my enthusiasm. I felt that I wasn't reading history but experiencing it, and it wasn't at all the history of the Declaration of Independence that I'd been taught. Rather, I was in the middle of a tumultuous cliffhanger, with the outcome of independence for the ...
Declaration Of Independence
Large, phrase-by-phrase drawings in clever, political cartoon style, Fink's illustrations do justice to document itself. Fun for kids, but advanced enough to entertain any audience. Book also includes a glossary of Jefferson's beautiful words, a Revolution chronology, and index. I recommend it for all ages.
The Annotated U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence
Belknap Press of Harvard University Press
It is important to understand fully the intent of authors of older texts, and well-researched annotations gives modern readers a better grasp of the original documents.
Passionate Declarations: Essays on War and Justice
Keeping democracy alive
"Passionate Declarations" by Howard Zinn is an outstanding collection of essays that were originally published in 1990. The new edition from 2003 features a Preface that was written just prior to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. In my view, Dr. Zinn's essays are helpful in understanding many of the forces that have influenced international events today. A theme that runs through most of the essays ...
The Declaration of Independence With Short Biographies of Its Signers (Little Books of Wisdom)
Benson John Lossing
I really believe every American should be required to read this stuff. This book, along with many others are part of the core documents of our country's history and founding. Understanding where we have come from, how hard we fought to get here, and what the original documents actually say is important if we want to hold on to it. These days, most people are getting this information from a ...
The Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States (Signet Classics)
This is an excellent read. Very well written and easy to read!! You don't have to have a law degree to undestand :)
A World Made New: Eleanor Roosevelt and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Mary Ann Glendon
Random House Trade Paperbacks
"A World Made New" isn't really about Eleanor Roosevelt, though she does have a big part in the story. Instead, the book chronicles the diplomacy that led to the 1948 adoption of the world's cornerstone human rights document, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The book also analyses the Declaration's role in shaping a global "rights consciousness" that has slowly but surely had a big ...
Lives of the Signers to the Declaration of Independence
Charles Augustus Goodrich
Before they began to rewrite our History
It is nice to have a history account written closer to the origins of our nation, the United States, than one seen through the myopic and self satisfied lens of late twentieth/twenty-first century perception, having decided to embrace that the United States came to be, and expanded, by destroying cultures and civilizations and just behaved in a thoroughly reprehensible way. We do not deny that ...
Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
Edge of your seat legal thriller
This book was an incredible legal thriller! The gist of the book is that a very religious couple is put on trial for neglecting to take their ill son to the hospital in time to save his life due to their religious beliefs which prohibit seeking medical care. The legal team is made up of a charismatic Christian law professor and the special advocate for the children, Nikki Moreno, who appears in ...
Benjamin Rush: Signer of the Declaration of Independence
A 1912 New York Times front page headline read: Titantic: UNSUNG HEROES OF THE ENGINE ROOM; Chief Bell's Men Kept Titanic's Lights Burning Until She Went Down. Benjamin Rush was the "Chief Bell" of the American Revolution and, (praise the Lord) the ship didn't go down. Rush kept the light of hope and faith burning in the hearts of the revolutionary giants. Of John Adams, Patrick Henry, ...
American Scripture: Making the Declaration of Independence
We have it in our power to begin the world over again
This was a required reading for a graduate humanities class. Pauline Maier expertly researched the events leading up to the birth of the Declaration. The First Continental Congress convened in Philadelphia in May of 1775, and included delegates from all of the thirteen colonies. Not all of the delegates to the Congress were in favor of separating from Great Britain, even though several of the ...
