Few decades in American history were as full of drama and historical significance as the 1960s and 1970s. In the 1960s, a revolution in race relations occurred, seeing the rise of the Civil Rights Movement, Black Power, the American Indian Movement, and the Latino labor movement. The focus in the 1970s was on carrying out the reforms of the previous decade, with resulting white backlash. Few decades have interested students today as much, and this volume is THE content-rich source in a desirable decade-by-decade organization to help students and general readers understand the crucial race rela
Christian nation? : the United States in popular perception and historical reality by Thomas Adams Upchurch( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 229 libraries worldwide
This study examines America's complex and confusing history of arguing with itself over religion and secularism, God and politics, church and state. In 2009, President Barack Obama stated that the United States was most definitely not a "Christian Nation." In 1797, a representative of the John Adams administration proclaimed the same thing in the Treaty of Tripoli. Is there, or has there ever been, a definitive answer to this most basic, and perennially controversial, question? Unlike other studies, this examination asks questions, defines the terms of the debate, explores the widely diverging points of view with equal respect for all sides, and provides commentary and factual conclusions. The book begins with several questions: Is the United States a "Christian Nation?" Has it ever been? Was it ever meant to be? What did the Founding Fathers say? How has this issue been interpreted by various individuals and factions over the centuries? The author then surveys the vast literature on this topic, including the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence and the competing and/or complimentary views of various Founding Fathers to arrive at some definitive answers

Abolition movement by Thomas Adams Upchurch( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 136 libraries worldwide
From the publisher. The practice of African slavery has been described as the United States's most shameful sin. Undoing this practice was a long, complex struggle that lasted centuries and ultimately drove America to a bitter civil war. After an introduction that places the United States's form of slavery into a global, historical perspective, author T. Adams Upchurch shows how an ancient custom evolved into the American South's peculiar institution. The gripping narrative will fascinate readers, while excerpts from primary documents provide glimpses into the minds of key abolitionists and proslavery apologists
