This popular and comprehensive anthology presents cogent, provocative articles from differing political perspectives on major issues in postwar 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 and Bill Clinton, as well as Robin Morgan, Anne Moody, and Phyllis Schlafly. For this edition, Chafe and Sitkoff have collaborated with a new coeditor, Beth Bailey, to give this classic text a fresh outlook. The sixth edition has been extensively revised to incorporate new documents and the most up-to-date articles, covering such recent events as the September 11 attacks. 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 of America's sometimes tumultuous but always fascinating history.
