REVIEW:
ThisNation was created by political science professor Jonathan Mott, Ph.D. as a companion site to his online textbook. The e-text and the other valuable resources on the site can all be accessed for free. The site covers topics such as the U.S. Constitution and federalism. Resources for each topic include historical documents, research and study helps, news articles, a section on applying what you've learned, and more. Additionally, the site offers an extensive library categorized by topics such as historical documents, speeches, Supreme Court decisions, war messages, and much more. Visitors will also be interested in the glossary and the multimedia gallery.
