A Brief History. Timeline of events portrayed like looking through a photo album of the past. There are many quick moments of time captured that create a desire for more information and understanding. How did the United States and its citizens get to where we are in 2010? Read for fun and use for high school or college course material. Those born from 1946-1964, this book is about YOU. Volume 1: The years from 1946 through 1980. You lived it. You suffered through it. You enjoyed it, but does anyone really understand what we went through? Did you ever try to talk to your grandchildren about the Vietnam War? Do they understand that while the "Easy Bake Oven" was the hottest toy for the Christmas season of 1963: In China the Great Leap Forward was responsible for over 31 million deaths due to starvation and famine which remained mostly unknown to the western world. The University of Alabama desegregated only after Governor George Wallace stepped aside when confronted by federally deployed National Guard troops. Civil rights leader Medgar Evers was assassinated June 12. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream," speech, August 28. South Vietnam President Ngo Dinh Diem was assassinated. November 2. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas November 22. Jack Ruby assassinated Lee Harvey Oswald, November 24, on live TV. This all took place the summer & fall of 1963 Did you even remember that all of this was going on while you were in front of the TV watching "Petticoat Junction" or "The Fugitive"? Controversial. Thought-provoking. Creates interest and discussion.

BOOMERS. What was the World like that you inherited? And "How We Changed The World." There are over 80 million Boomers in the U.S. If you look through the data it is obvious how the citizens of the United States of America (YOU) fought for honor, decency, high moral values and against all of the warnings we started to slide ever so slowly down that path to where we are today. What so many of us do not remember is how long and hard we fought. This book will mean something different to every person who reads it because we are all different with a common ground. Our intention is to take you back in time and allow you to feel exactly what it was like. This book is a powerful academic resource that can be used on many different levels. Above all it is down-to-earth and extremely interesting to just sit and read.
