John Hollitz received his Ph.D from the University of Wisconsin in 1981 and has been professor of history at the Community College of Southern Nevada since 1992. Previously, he taught at California State University, Chico. In addition to CONTENDING VOICES, he has also authored a critical thinking reader, THINKING THROUGH THE PAST, 5th Edition (Cengage, 2014). Dr. Hollitz is a dedicated teacher of the U.S. History survey course.


Each chapter in CONTENDING VOICES examines the lives of two individuals, some of them familiar historical figures and some of them lesser known, who took opposing positions on important issues in American history. The "paired biographies" in the text are followed by a set of four to six related primary sources, many in the individuals' own voices; a "Questions to Consider" section; and an annotated bibliography. This unique format promotes critical thinking and engages students in historical debates.

1. Race and Redemption in the Reconstructed South: Robert Smalls and Wade Hampton. 2. Organizing Labor in the Age of Industry: Terence Powderly an dSamuel Gompers 3. Farmers and the "New South": Tom Watson and Henry Grady. 4. Sex, Anarchism, and Domestic Science in Progressive America: Emma Goldman and Ellen Richards. 5. Progressives at War: Randolph Bourne and George Creel. 6. Science, Religion, and "Culture Wars" in the 1920s: William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Darrow. 7. Politics and the Big Screen in the Great Depression: Upton Sinclair and Louis B. Mayer. 8. Racism and Relocation During World War II: Harry Ueno and Dillon Myer. 9. Confrontation and Compromise in the Cold War: James Byrnes and Henry A. Wallace. 10. Politics and Principle in the Second Red Scare: Joseph McCarthy and Margaret Chase Smith. 11. From Black Protest to Black Power: Roy Wilkins and Fannie Lou Hamer. 12. The Battles of Vietnam: Robert McNamara and Jan Barry. 13. From Mystique to Militance: Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem. 14. Individualism and the Environment in the 1980s: Edward Abbey and James Watt. 15. Fighting a "War on Terror": Richard Clarke and John Yoo.
