Rate this:
The ancient Greeks are believed to be the first people to establish a formal democratic government. However, their concept of democracy seems very different from what we believe today. More than ever, democracy today strives to be a system in which everyone's opinion should count equally. Using primary source documents and images, this book discusses the beginnings of democracy, the democracy of the Iroquois Nation, and its development in the American colonies. It offers a discussion of the words in the U.S. Constitution, the significance of the Gettysburg Address, and the power of Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech. It's a clear overview of democracy as an evolving system of government.
