    The following three titles provide three distinct, focused topics suitable for beginning a research paper.

    The Weekly War: Newsmagazines and Vietnam
    Vietnam Veteranos: Chicanos Recall the War.
    Death of a Generation: How the Assassination of Diem and JKF Prolonged the Vietnam War.

    What were Kennedy’s decisions about Vietnam and the escalation of the conflict?

    Browsing the Table of Contents in Death of a Generation, I find a chapter with this evidence:
    “Kennedy’s decision to withdraw was unconditional, for he approved a calendar of events that did not necessitate a victory.”


    “On October 2, 1963, President Kennedy made the decision to withdraw the first contingent of U.S. military forces from Vietnam, the initial step toward a major disengagement.”

    The warmth of other suns : the epic story of America's great migration
    Call Number: E185.6 .W55 2011
    ISBN: 9780679763888
    Starred Review. Ida Mae Brandon Gladney, a sharecropper's wife, left Mississippi for Milwaukee in 1937, after her cousin was falsely accused of stealing a white man's turkeys and was almost beaten to death. In 1945, George Swanson Starling, a citrus picker, fled Florida for Harlem after learning of the grove owners' plans to give him a "necktie party" (a lynching). Robert Joseph Pershing Foster made his trek from Louisiana to California in 1953, embittered by "the absurdity that he was doing surgery for the United States Army and couldn't operate in his own home town." Anchored to these three stories is Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Wilkerson's magnificent, extensively researched study of the "great migration," the exodus of six million black Southerners out of the terror of Jim Crow to an "uncertain existence" in the North and Midwest.

    Kill the Indian, save the man : the genocidal impact of American Indian residential schools
    Call Number: E97 .C57 2004
    ISBN: 0872864340
    The author first analyzes the term genocide (coined by Raphael Lemkin in 1944), stressing that the phrase covers not only physical extermination of a people but also biological genocide (policies to prevent births within a group) and cultural genocide. The Indian residential schools in both the U.S and Canada fall squarely into this latter category, which includes the forced exile of children and the prohibition of the use of a national language or religion. Churchill next turns his attention to the schools themselves, uncovering a host of grim details. In Canada, half of the children sent to residential schools did not survive because of rampant disease, near-starvation diets, and brutal labor. Booklist
