Summary

"The 1970s, a volume in Facts On File's acclaimed Eyewitness History series, provides hundreds of firsthand accounts of the decade - from diary entries, letters, speeches, and newspaper accounts - that illustrate how historical events appeared to those who lived through them. In addition to the firsthand accounts, each chapter will provide an introductory essay and a chronology of events. The book also includes excerpts from such critical documents as the Equal Rights Amendment, the War Powers Act, FBI teletypes regarding student protests at Kent State University, and President Jimmy Carter's South Lawn Departure Statement for the Middle East, as well as capsule biographies of 47 key figures, 12 maps and graphs, 98 black-and-white photographs, notes, a bibliography, and an index." -- Book jacket.
