Fire in the Streets

The Social Crisis of the 1960s

Joel M. Sipress, Series Editors: Joel M. Sipress, and David J. Voelker

Debating American History Series

  • Organized around a big question about which historians themselves disagree: Why did the United States enter a period of social and political turmoil in a time of unprecedented economic prosperity?
  • Exposes students to rival positions about which they must make informed judgments
  • Asks students to judge the relative merits of rival positions on the basis of historical evidence
  • Requires students to develop their own positions, for which they must argue on the basis of historical evidence
  • Offers an alternative to the "coverage model" that has dominated History classrooms since the late nineteenth century, and which has consistently fallen short of its own goals since its inception
  • Concise and flexible format allows for inclusion in a variety of classroom settings
  • Each title in the series is edited by Joel M. Sipress and David J. Voelker, award-winning teachers who have published and lectured extensively on reform in the teaching of History
  • Included with the purchase of all new copies, the ebook offers short video clips, flashcards, animated maps, interactive timelines, and additional primary sources
