The American Reader: Words That Moved a Nation
Harper Collins, 2000年9月5日 - 656 頁
The American Reader is a stirring and memorable anthology that captures the many facets of American culture and history in prose and verse. The 200 poems, speeches, songs, essays, letters, and documents were chosen both for their readability and for their significance. These are the words that have inspired, enraged, delighted, chastened, and comforted Americans in days gone by. Gathered here are the writings that illuminate -- with wit, eloquence, and sometimes sharp words -- significant aspects of national conciousness. They reflect the part that all Americans -- black and white, native born and immigrant, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American, poor and wealthy -- have played in creating the nation's character.

who value freedom, use our utmost care to support liberty, the only bulwark
against lawless power, which, in all ages, has sacrificed to its wild lust and
that a bad precedent in one government is soon set up for an authority in another;
and therefore I cannot but think it mine and every honest man's duty that, while
we pay all due obedience to men in authority, we ought, at the same time, to be ...
