We live in a world of documents - bland, nondescript, run-of-the-mill documents that nobody ever notices. Until you understand their stories - and their profound impacts. From the Rosetta Stone to President Obama's birth certificate to Alfred Nobel's will, Webster's Dictionary, the Fannie Farmer Cookbook, the "We Can Do It!" poster, the Nineteenth Amendment, and the first Internet Protocol, Joe Janes throws open the idea of a "document," examining the twists and turns of history through these and other examples throughout the millennia - how they came to be; what they mean; and, in many cases, what they are becoming in a changing world.
