Armstrong, Jennifer. THE CENTURY FOR YOUNG PEOPLE : CHANGING AMERICA, 1961-1999 New York : Delacorte Press, 2009 IL 5-8, RL 7.0 ISBN 038590682X This is an adaptation of Peter Jennings' award winning documentaries on the 20th century. In the third book in the series, we look at the end of the century. During that time, the United States was involved in the unpopular Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement, the Women's Lib movement, protests marches, and the computer revolution. The events are told through the eyes of the people who lived it. Let your imagination send you on a journey to our nation's past.
