PLS3107 History of the U.S. since World War II

Course Description

An introductory course designed to provide a thought-provoking treatment of the American past, focusing on the latter half of the 20th century, which at least one historian has called the age of extremes. This course is intended to put into historical perspective the dominant public events of the times. It comprises an approach to the study of history that seeks to identify possible connections among many factors — the political, social, and economic trends and cultural developments that have shaped and reshaped our society.
