Elaine Tyler May, “Explosive Issues: Sex, Women, and the Bomb,” from 

 

Recasting America: Culture and Politics in the Age of the Cold War, 

 

Lary May, ed. 

 

Instructions:

 

As we did with a previous homework assignment, pick any two of the following 

 

questions, as long as the sum of the two numbers adds up to eleven. 

 

(Example: You could pick #1 and #10 or #3 and #8 or #5 and #6, etc.) Answer 

 

each in a paragraph using specific information from the reading along with

 

your own analysis. If you simply use the numbers of the questions you’ve 

 

chosen, there will be no need to type out the question.
