Civil Rights in the United States
This collection of primary source materials offers a panoramic view of the history of civil rights in the United States. Documents, images, audio, and video provide users an in-depth look at the full range of rights that constitute America's democratic tradition. The collection of materials examines in detail such topics as free speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, obscenity and secrecy laws, privacy rights, the rights of the accused and the convicted, the right to vote, and equal rights for African Americans, women, Native Americans, and immigrants. This title also offers a glimpse at disputed rights, from abortion and gun control to gay rights and the death penalty, as well as newly emergent rights, such as the right to die, animal rights, environmental rights, and children's rights.
