Summary

Designed for the "U.S. Since 1945" course, this comprehensive survey presents the World War II experience as a backdrop for understanding recent developments and events in American history. The text features four principal, interwoven themes: the pervasive impact of the Cold War; the effects of social-protest movements among African Americans, women, and other groups; the sources and impact of economic, demographic, and cultural changes; and a thorough examination of politics.

  • New! This edition includes coverage of the 2000 election, recent trends in immigration, the attacks of September 11, and the war on terrorism, including the U.S. role in Afghanistan and Iraq.
