Full Description

The 1970s continued the tumult of the previous decade with new political and social conflicts. While the country remained embroiled in the Vietnam War for the first half of the decade, the Nixon administration found itself sinking under the weight of the Watergate scandal. President Richard Nixon ultimately resigned before he could be impeached for his infractions, but not before he pulled U.S. troops out of Vietnam. The U.S. Supreme Court both pleased and appalled the public, depending on one's opinion of the matter, when it ruled that abortion was legal. A medical, social, and moral controversy surrounded the first test tube baby. By the decade's close, floppy disks were for sale, Microsoft was founded, and Americans had been taken hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Iran. The following documents are just a sampling of the offerings available in this volume: Born to Run, by Bruce SpringsteenLooking Out for Number One by Robert J.
