by Kerry P. Callahan
 

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This entry in the "Great American Political Documents" series examine the Articles of Confederation, the Document that Preceded the American Constitution. Each chapter begins with a quote from the title document and proceeds to reveal its significance. Chapters examine the pre-Revolution American colonies, the writing of the Articles, and the problems that developed until calls for a strong central government compelled the fledgling country to draft the Constitution. Callahan does an admirable job of unfolding the struggles that the young country went through in its first years of independence. The layout of the series sports a large, readable typeface with plenty of white space that belies the YA reading level. The books reviewed present competent, concise explanations of the documents in question. Students will find them quite useful in understanding the events and circumstances that prompted the creation of the documents. Other titles in the series include The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence, The Iroquois Constitution, and The U.S. Constitution. 2003, Rosen, 112p.; Glossary. Index. Biblio. Illus. Photos. Further Reading. Source Notes., PLB. Ages 11 to Adult.
