This source talks about feminism in America and the history of it. Feminism
has been important to the sexual revolution since the 1970’s so this book has
a lot of good information that I can use to talk about the sexual revolution.
This book also gives me great information on the rights that women were
looking for that can help me talk about the reforms that have been made
since 1970. This is a credible source because it is published by a great
publishing company and edited by an editor that has a Ph.D in English and is
a professor at Xavier University.

database in the Gale Group database. This database has put out tons of

so I know that this source will be very good.

United States. It has great information on all the history of homosexuality in
the United States and all the rights that gays have had to fight for. I can use
all of this information to talk about the reforms that have happened since
1970 to give homosexuals more rights and even the revolution of gays being
more open about their sexuality. I know this source is very good because I
found it on ABC-CLIO which is a well respected database with credible
information.

great insight into what America was doing during the Cold War. I can use this
book for background information for what was happening in the United States
from 1970-1992. This book has lots of information on the revolutions and
reforms that were occurring in the United States at the time of the Cold War
and all the protests that were going on as well. This book is also very
credible because it was published by a credible publishing company and the

This is a very good source with information on the sexual revolution that
occurred in the United States in the 1960’s and lasted until the 1980’s and
arguably even longer. This source gives me great information on everything
that happened in the sexual revolution. The source gives all the reasons for
why the revolution occurred and everything that the people of America were
doing to make this revolution happen. This is a very credible source because
it comes from a great database in the gale group that puts out very credible

rely on it.
6) The Fight for Peace: A History of Antiwar Movements in America. Ted
Gottfried. Twenty-First ….Century Books. Minneapolis. 2006. Print.

I used this source for the timeline that it had at the very end of it. The
timeline has some very good information in it that gives me some very
important events that occurred during my time period. The timeline gives
me the dates of important protest events that happened in the United States
such as the Kent State Shooting all the way to the peace movement after the
United states found no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. This is a
credible source because it is published by a credible publishing company and
the author is a graduate from the University of Miami and has written a
handful of other books that have been published.

Print.

This is a great book with lots of information on protests in the United States.
This book has a lot of information on citizens of the United States that were
upset with the government and setup protests to show their displeasure. I
can use this book to talk about all the different protests that were occurring
in the United States in my time period. This is another credible source
because it is published by an educational publishing company that would only
put out credible information. Also the author of the book is a professor of
history at Temple University so the information he gives is almost certainly
credible.
