Summary
"This important resource provides students and researchers new insights into the 1960s in the U.S., through an in-depth analysis of forty important primary source documents and their lasting effect on American history. Defining Documents in American History: 1960s provides detailed, thought-provoking analysis of: The Civil Rights Movement; The Vietnam War and Anti-War Movement; The Apollo 11 Moon Landing; The Assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.; Beatlemania and the British Invasion; and many, many more! An historical timeline and bibliography of important supplemental readings will support readers in understanding the broader historical events and subjects in the period. An introduction for each of the major subjects covered in the title considers the significance of document analysis for students and educators. Each in-depth chapter guides readers with historical insight and comprehension. The documents included represent the diversity of ideas and contexts that defined social, political, and cultural subjects throughout this period in American history."--Publisher website
