Courses: American Pol & Soc: 1940-Pres (HISTB242001)

Fall 2010

Class Number: 1316
This course looks at the amazing transformation of America in the years 1940 to today. From a country devastated by economic crisis and wedded to isolationism prior to WW II, America became an unchallenged international powerhouse. Massive grass roots resistance forced the United States to abandon racial apartheid, open opportunities to women, and reinvent its very definition as it incorporated immigrants from around the globe. In the same period, American music and film broke free from their staid moorings and permanently altered global culture. We will explore the political, social, and cultural factors that created modern American history.
