Defining Documents in American History:
Slavery
Pub. Date: August 2019
ISBN: 978-1-64265-281-9
List Price: $295
Defining Documents in American History: Slavery  delves into the extremely long and violent history of the titular subject. These volumes discuss slavery in multiple contexts, from ancient times to the slave trade during colonial America, and from the abolitionist movement to issues of slavery in the modern era. 

Slavery was not universally endorsed, but it became a part of the economic fabric of the nation. Riots and rebellions alarmed owners and strengthened the resolve of those who worked toward the abolition of slavery and the emancipation of the men, women, and children deemed “property” and valued as only three-fifths of a human. It took a civil war to achieve the goal of freedom for all, and decades of work that continues to this day, to gain and defend the civil rights and liberties afforded to all citizens.
The two-volume set includes in-depth chapters that provide a thorough commentary of significant primary source documents, including:
  • David Walker's Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World
  • Nellie Norton, or Southern Slavery in the Bible
  • The Missouri Compromise
  • The Boston Riot by Charles Summer
  • Lucy Stanton, "A Plea for the Oppressed"
  • The Emancipation Proclamation

Each in-depth chapter provides a thorough commentary and analysis of each primary source document, often reprinted in its entirety. Commentary includes a Summary, Overview, Defining Moment, Author Biography , Detailed Document Analysis , and discussion of Essential Themes .
Defining Documents in American History:
Business Ethics
More and more, the specific ethics policies that many businesses and corporations developed in the late 1970's and 80's are not enough today. Transparency related to sources and materials, pricing strategies, and the public good is crucial for success of any business. The detailed document analysis begins with early essays instrumental in the creation and development of the field of business ethics, and continues to 2019 by examining issues relevant right now, from harassment and discrimination to technology and privacy.

Defining Documents in American History: Business Ethics includes in-depth chapters that provide a thorough commentary of significant primary source documents, including:
  • John Stuart Mills: Utilitarianism
  • Ralph Nader: Unsafe at any Speed
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act
  • "Facebook, Big Data, and the Trust of the Public"
  • Wells Fargo account fraud scandal
Pub. Date: October 2019
