American Century PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

American Century free pdf "The American Century" is a succinct, well-written history of the United States in the modern (post-1890's) era. It is valuable for either the second half of U.S. survey courses or for 20th Century U.S. courses for upper class students. The text places special emphasis on economic and urban growth, social and political change, civil rights and liberties, and the growth of the U.S. into a global superpower. The specialization of each author contributes to an unusually strong balance of coverage. The authors handle both domestic and foreign policy issues and demonstrate the ways in which domestic and foreign policies are linked.
