    I am trying to find some sources to talk about social change in America between the years of 1896-1945...

    I can't find any sources, and in less then a month, I have a one hour seminar on the topic. I have to focus more on technology, so if someone could send me some sources of where I can find the change in technology during those years (preferably books because they are more reliable - say teachers) so I can get the historical context and analyze the significance of that social change, but I need them quick.

    Thanks for all your help.

    4 names to get you started.. Thomas A Edison, Nikola Tesla, Guglielmo Marconi and John Logie Baird. You can throw in Oliver Lodge, Lee DeForest, Reginald Fessenden, Alan Turing and Harry Ricardo as well if you want.

    They changed the face of the world more than most. A google of those should get you well on your way. Sorry I don't know any online direct sources to the books you need.. but those names should link to interesting results.

    didn't we have a thread like this a few months back?
    DiRect, add in the 1st & 2nd world wars to that because if not for those 2, we would not be were we are now. we might only just be getting to the moon the 1st time not almost 38yrs later.
