This popular and comprehensive anthology presents cogent, provocative articles from differing political perspectives on major issues in postwar America. In addition to selections 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 Bill Clinton, Joseph McCarthy, Anne Moody, Robin Morgan, and Phyllis Schlafly. Providing a balance of diverse political viewpoints, the documents include the voices of men and women of African American, European American, Asian American, and Latino/as descent.
The seventh edition of A History of Our Time has been extensively revised to incorporate new documents and the most up-to-date articles, which examine such contemporary issues as the Iraq war, political polarization, the new economy, marriage, and the red state/blue state divide. The editors have also added and deleted articles on earlier events in response to changing historiographical trends. New documents cover a broader range of history, addressing not only political issues, but also social, economic, and technological concerns. With lively and enlightening introductions to each section and headnotes that provide a context for the articles, A History of Our Time helps students make sense of the past sixty years of America's sometimes tumultuous but always fascinating history.
