Summary: This new text/reader for courses in recent American history emphasizes political participation and popular culture. Its main theme is the relationship of Americans to their government--for example, how Americans as a people remain skeptical of big government even as they expect it to facilitate large programs such as Social Security.

Unlike most postwar American history books that are presented in one volume and tend to emphasize the 1950s and 60s, The Amer ...show moreican Paradox comes in a complete version and a version that covers U.S. history since 1968, providing full coverage and analysis of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s.

Each chapter contains one or two primary sources, more than any other competing text. The documents include Nixon's 1969 address to the nation about Vietnam, a Stonewall-era statement from the gay rights activist Sylvia (Ray) Rivera, and Phyllis Schlafly's argument against the Equal Rights Amendment.
More attention is paid to the period spanning from 1970 to the present than in any competing text.
The text explores the tension between popular culture and social realities, the dynamics of minority groups and their place in American society, and the ambivalent feelings many Americans have had concerning the U.S.'s role in the world during the postwar period.
