In addition to economic and democratic prowess, America's Century reviews achievements in the arts, popular culture and sports. This comprehensive volume revisits the events that shaped a nation's consciousness, from the Great Depression to the moon landing, from the civil unrest of the sixties to the booming economy of the nineties. This fascinating look at the last 100 years of America's journey will entertain and amaze.
