Morgan and Wynn have compiled a series of in-depth essays that reflect the evolution of twentieth-century American history. The first seven chapters offer a sequential panorama of pivotal political, cultural, and economic events. Commencing with the Progressive Era, other entries focus on the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War, and contemporary U.S. society. This chronology is followed by four topical contributions concerning American women, black Americans, constitutional changes, and foreign policy. Absorbed individually or as a cohesive unit, these articles provide a comprehensive overview of twentieth-century America and contain a wealth of valuable information and research material.
