The Influence on/Reflection of - Books & Society

I am writing an essay on books and their influence on and/or reflection of society over the centuries. Am having trouble locating online and printed sources. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

I can see why this would be a difficult topic to find sources for. It is easy to google a straightforward topic, but this topic is tough to explain, and tough to find key words for.

How about if you search for this:
The influence of literature upon society

I found a few good sources that way. Also, I use questia.com. MAybe that will help you, but you have to pay a little $$ for membership.

ALSO, this topic is too broad. Choose a society or a particular aspect of a society. Also, you might want to choose particular kinds of literature or particular kinds of influence. For example, you might want to write about the influence of literature on the gender equality/inequality in the 18th, 19th, and 20th century.

Thanks, K. Unfortunately, the requirements of the assignment didn't allow me to narrow it down much further than that. But, a lot of it had to be based on my interpretation of what I read. I think that I was able to find enough to create a credible paper and I'm waiting on my grade now. If it had had to be any longer than it was, I would have been in serious trouble; as it is, I think it might have been enough.

Thank you for your help, and I'm glad I found this forum! You can be sure I'll be back! :)
