From 1910 to 1919, the United States saw its status as a world superpower escalate-a status confirmed by the end of World War I in 1918. This new addition to the Defining Documents series profiles these formative years in modern American history, providing careful, close analysis of over forty important documents from the era. Defining Documents in American History: The 1910s explores the second decade of the 20th century in America, offering in-depth critical and analytical essays of various documents created during this time. Articles begin by introducing readers to the document's historical context, followed by a description of the author's life and circumstances in which the document was written. A document analysis, written by professional writers and historians, guides the readers in understanding the key elements of language, rhetoric, and social and political meaning that define the significance of the author and document in the context of the time. This brand-new title provides detailed insight into a wide spectrum of topics from the 1910s, including: The Mann Act; Establishment of Income Tax; The Clayton Anti-Trust Act; The Sedition Act of 1918; Standard Oil Co. v. United States; Creation of the Federal Reserve System; Entry of the United States into World War I. This collection will introduce students and educators to a diverse range of genres, including journals, letters, speeches, government legislation, and court opinions. Documents represent the diversity of ideas and contexts that define social, political and cultural subjects throughout American history. An historical timeline and a bibliography of related supplemental reading are also included.--Publisher description
