HIST 395/495: Politics and Culture in the 1970s

Information and resources for these courses related to politics and culture in the 1970s.


Congressional Committee Hearings and various breakdowns for Senate Armed Services Committee hearings are great information sources because congressional committees have the legal authority to swear in witnesses, feature information from a variety of sources and viewpoints, document committee members questioning witnesses and witness responses, and because congressional committees are responsible for approving legislation, funding government programs, and conducting oversight of these programs. (Hearing transcripts may include reports submitted by committee members and witnesses.)
