Summary

Revised and updated, this classic text presents a vivid rendering of America from World War II into the twenty-first century, stressing economic and urban growth, social and political change, civil rights and liberties, and the growth of the United States into a global superpower.
Special sections cover gender, diversity, culture, science and technology, and environmental history. A new chapter brings the reader up to the present and places the United States in its current world position. Timelines and marginal notes are now included, and the overall length of the text has been reduced by approximately 50 pages--making it more readable to students and less expensive.
The sixth edition of this classic text also includes an all-new Online Learning Center that provides students with high interest features--illustrations and photos, maps, quizzes, an elaboration of key themes in the book, PowerPoint presentations, and a special lecture launcher feature that brings both textual and visual elements together to revisit four important moments in the 20th century. The lecture launchers are titles the Versailles Conference, the "Military-Industrial Complex" Speech by Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Tet Offensive, and a Second American Century?
