This popular and comprehensive anthology presents cogent, provocative articles from differing political perspectives on major issues in post-War America. In addition to articles by leading historians, the editors have assembled first-person accounts of various issues by those who have contributed to the shaping of America's rich history, including Joseph McCarthy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bill Clinton. This fifth edition has been considerably revised to incorporate up-to-date articles on the most significant issues facing contemporary America, including essays on affirmative action, Generation X, and the crises of post-Cold War foreign policy. With lively and enlightening introductions to each section and headnotes providing a context for the articles, A History of Our Time helps students make sense of the past fifty years in America's sometimes tumultuous but always fascinating history.
