Is it exciting with car chases and explosions and romantic love scenes, no. In fact it's kind of dry and at times boring. when I was in my early twenties I found this book in a thrift shop and I wanted to know more about America, so I read this book. I still have my copy and I thumb through it every now and again. It's a must read for any American and I highly recommended to anybody who wants a better understanding of the good ol US of A

Wish this volume included the documents for the succession of the Southern states and the constitution for the Confederacy. Though illegal these documents are an important part of U.S. History and present an enlightening view into the causes for the war and dispel the myth that the Civil War was about anything other than the right to keep slaves.

I'm gradually going through the Harvard Classics and this is a collection of just what it says - various documents from the Viking days up to agreements on the Panama Canal. The most compelling was a quite long eye-witness account of the Battle of Gettysburg by a soldier named Frank Haskell. I read the book in small bites - 5 min. a day. I skimmed parts of treaties, but it's interesting to learn about things I never would have known, dry as some of it was.

Copies of historic documents thathad influence over events over the last thousand years. A good research resource.
