Summary: One of the most authoritative texts on modern America, this concise, readable survey of twentieth century American history has been a reliable source for more than twenty years. The text has evolved from a book which primarily covered political and diplomatic history to one which devotes considerable space to areas of special interest such as African American history, women's history, urbanization, the role of ethnic groups, changing sexual mores, the power of corpor ...show moreations and the conflict of economic groups, and trends in regional and national values. The author offers contemporary interpretations and presents various sides of controversial issues. The book is appropriate for courses on the United States in the Twentieth Century, United States To 1940, and United States Since 1940 found in both History and American Studies departments.

  • America in the Twentieth Century is based on the best of contemporary scholarship.
  • The text is concise, but covers all the topics expected in a survey of twentieth century America such as politics, foreign policy, race relations, social and income change, and cultural and intellectual developments. The new edition adds a chapter (17) which treats the years 1992-1998 and adds coverage of events into late 1998.
  • A new and enhanced illustration program featuring substantially more photographs contributes to a more accessible appearance.
  • A new boxed feature, "First Person," provides informative quotations and literary excerpts.
