Description

Harvard Skitoff brings together some of America's most distinguished scholars to survey and analyze what many have called "the American century". Each of the contributors - who include such names as William Leuchtenburg, Paul Boyer, Lizabeth Cohen and Charles Payne - has written a broad interpretive essay on a key aspect of American life and how it changed over the 20th century. The essays address a wide range of political, social and economic issues, including the history of liberalism and conservatism; the labour movement and the distribution of wealth; immigration and ethnicity; the status of women and African Americans; consumer culture, the federal government; foreign policy, religion, and American cultural and intellectual life.show more
