The War on Poverty

To do extensive research, using published and archival sources, on the War on Poverty, which has yet to be treated, in any depth, historically. The findings would result in articles or, possibly, a book. Although the vast social science literature on this topic contains a wealth of information, some of it based on first-hand experience and direct observation, it does not constitute a history of the War on Poverty. Areas to be explored include: the interplay between the War on Poverty and American values concerning individualism, voluntarism, community, democracy, education and youth.
