This new edition of Democracy in America makes Tocqueville's classic nineteenth-century study of American politics, society, and culture available - finally! - in a brief and accessible version. Designed for instructors who are eager to teach the work but reluctant to assign all 700 plus pages, Kammen's careful abridgment features the most well-known chapters that by scholarly consensus are most representative of Tocqueville's thinking on a wide variety of issues. A comprehensive introduction provides historical and intellectual background, traces the author's journey in America, helps students unpack the meaning behind key Tocquevillian concepts like "individualism, " "equality, " and "tyranny of the majority, " and discusses the work's reception and legacy. Newly translated, this edition offers instructors a convenient and affordable option for exploring this essential work with their students. Useful pedagogic features include a chronology, questions for consideration, a selected bibliography, illustrations, and an index.

This textbook offers the complete text of the actual confessions of Nat Turner, the Virginia slave preacher who in 1831 led the bloodiest slave revolt in US history. An introduction provides the historical context for the revolt and allows students to consider problems suggested by the document. Additional sources include Southern editorials, which give students a sense of contemporary white reaction to slave uprisings. The volume also includes questions to consider.
