Synopsis

This is a sociological study of the May 4, 1970, shootings at Kent State University and their aftermath. Beginning with a detailed description of the May 4 shootings and the events that preceded them, "Kent State and May 4th" is a revised, updated, and expanded volume of essays that seeks to answer frequently raised questions while correcting historical inaccuracies. The third edition includes a new essay that analyzes a group of television documentaries about May 4 and an overview of the legal aftermath of the shootings, including governmental investigations to determine responsibility and how students were affected by these events. The book also explores the gymnasium annex controversy of 1977, in which Kent State University proposed the building of a new recreational facility on portions of land where students and Guardsmen confronted each other. Finally, the editors examine how the university and community have memorialized May 4 over the past forty years. "Kent State and May 4th" provides valuable insights into events that have been woven into our nation's collective memory.

It will appeal to political scientists, sociologists, and American studies and Vietnam Warera historians.
