In a century of modernisation, the memorable decades shoot the stars of one decade so bright and called the sixties. It was definitely unlike others. It screamed for its entity of liberty, knowledge, power, wealth, thrill, wanted to see a generation through Purple Haze. Taking communication beyond the realm of any hesitation with television and movies; ‘60s are back’.
Civil rights marches, urban riot, soldier fighting at Vietnam and citizen protesting back home, students taking over college campuses, hippies in their unconventional dresses with flowers in their wiery hair, rolling on drug and rock music, rock and rolling on spirit of free love. It was a revolution in the air for the social deconstruction through the social and political activism of ‘the movement’ of the left wing leaving a collective memory of the contrasts that ever any decade has seen, of its Economic and Social changes, like America of 60s and beyond saw (Whitfield 2004).
The materials of this web site of Duke University Press are reflecting the issues of the race, labour market and social disorder of the twentieth century America through its journal of Social Science History. It introduces the rise of the African Americans in the central cities from 10% approx. , in contrast to the post 60s reading clocks nearly at 60%, far than that of whites. But the site is also arguing on the discriminations and poverty rising due to various economic factors, kinds of markets, social systems, policies and movements.
In the United State’s social history the site contributes the connection of the historic redistribution of the Black population. The site is recommendable for the research as it has the relevant concern for the subject matter and has eventually gone deeper into the subject, projecting the post 60s U. S. economy and society. More over the web site is a typical research oriented one that provides social journals with a vision, ‘Today’s Research. Tomorrow’s Inspiration’ that holds the emblem of the Registration of Project Muse.
The whole effort is produced by ‘The Johns Hopkins University Press’ with an extended academic support of ‘The Milton S. Eisenhower Library’. Thus, it goes for the motion that the site can be employed for the research for its viability and genuineness of the academic and literary interpretations (Collins 1971). The site of Lone Star College – Kingwood is describing the American cultural history from 1960 to 69 precisely. Apart from the general review of the decade, it also has the facts and the figures of the same.
From art, architecture to books and fashion, from events and technology to music and war, from people and sports to television and politics, the site has cover roughly everything of the decade, in a very briefly manner. But, since it is brief; it does not convey the message that it can not support a research. The said is the only pen picture of the homepage, which again has number of links to get access to great deal of details. The site has extra links of library and research guide, which makes it more suitable for research purpose.
It is a college library site with a dot command of education, proving it to be an educational site and can be employed for the research (Lone Star College 2008). Since the topic about post 60s America, here it draws a sharp contrast by sifting the focus to South America. Growth and structural change in Latin America since 1960 analyses the economic and trade effect on the society. It comparing the effect since 1930s and what happened in 70s and 80s. economic slowdown, import substitute, export and reliance on foreign debts have the economy of the region and have not been engaged in creative response anymore.
Though it has a slow starting but has argued the growth considering the emerging power later. The site is absolutely perfect for the research. Firstly, the article is developed by Harvard Institute for International Development and Bar Ilan University, Israel and got the patent of the ‘The University of Chicago’. Again it has the patent of the Jestor community, which is served and supported by the community of the scholars and exclusively an academic site. Thus, it is high employable (Syrquin. 1986).
This site is about the sustainable development of America through its history of environmental politics, policies and common good. The site has explained the millennium ecosystem assessment from now till post 60s era. But the site can not be used in the research as it is much of a blog than a site. It has the option to post comment. The open domain nature of this site has made it prone to bias feedbacks and confusing conclusion (Environmental Economics & Sustainable Development 2006). The American Scene describes the age of abundance, which includes the American politics, movie, culture, etc.
that happened as the baby boomers grew up, and once who saw the war in their childhood. But the site shares the same problem like the previous one. It is kind of blog and has got the place to leave replies there is no academic support and viability to have faith on the articles (The American Scene 2008). Fertility change in Utah: 1960-1975 has discussed the fertility rate of the area and it social and economic contribution that started from 1800 and continued till the post 60s period. But it is futile to discuss on this site as the site is lacking in genuineness.
It appears to be a word document with certain links to connect for further information. Even the source cited is also absurd up to a great extent (Fertility change in Utah: 1960-1975 2008).
