Polish historical space is deficient in studies of source materials about the United States of America’s history and culture. Until now, the initiative of publishing the above mentioned sources has been made by the staff of the American Studies Center of the University of Warsaw. In 1994 a selection of source materials ed. by Michał Rozbicki and Krzysztof Michałek titled “A Selection of Sources on the History and Culture of the United States of America” was published. Over twenty years that have passed since this publication and its limited availability have impelled me to work on this volume.
