Sex in the heartland by Beth L Bailey( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sex in the Heartland is the story of the sexual revolution in a small university town in the quintessential heartland state of Kansas." "Bailey fundamentally challenges contemporary perceptions of the revolution as simply a triumph of free love and promiscuity. Rather, she explores the long-term and mainstream changes in American society, beginning in the economic and social dislocations of World War II and the explosion of mass media and communication, which aided and abetted the sexual upheaval of the 1960s. Focusing on Lawrence, Kansas, we discover the intricacies and depth of a transformation that was nurtured at the grass roots." "Bailey untangles the radically different origins, intentions, and outcomes of events and movements to help us better understand their roles and meanings for sex in contemporary America. She argues that the sexual revolution challenged and partially overturned a system of sexual controls based on oppression, inequality, and exploitation, and created new models of sex and gender relations that have shaped our society in powerful and positive ways."--Jacket

Understanding the U.S. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding the United States' wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is essential to understanding the United States in the first decade of the new millennium and beyond. These wars were pivotal to American foreign policy and international relations. They raised critical ethical and legal questions; they provoked debates over policy, strategy, and war planning; they helped to shape American domestic politics. And they highlighted a profound division among the American people: While more than two million Americans served in Iraq and Afghanistan, the vast majority of American and their families remained untouched by and frequently barely aware of the wars conducted in their name, far from American shores, in regions about which they knew little. Understanding the U.S. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan gives us the first book-length, expert historical analysis of these wars. It examines the lessons and legacies of wars whose outcomes may not be clear for decades"-- Back cover
