Book Description(s):[1]

 

·         Common Sense: Enormously popular and widely read pamphlet, first published in January of 1776, clearly and persuasively argues for American separation from Great Britain and paves the way for the Declaration of Independence.

·         Inter-American Democratic Charter: It is the affirmation that democracy is and should be the common form of government for all countries of the Americas, and it represents a collective commitment to maintaining and strengthening the democratic system in the region.  The main purpose of this inter-American instrument is the strengthening and upholding of democratic institutions throughout the nations of the Americas.  The Charter defines democracy and its relationship to integral development and the war on poverty, and it specifies how it should be defended when under threat.[2]
