9781403948311: America since 1945: The American Moment

This is an introduction to the study of America since 1945--the period in which the US became a world power. Alternate chapters provide the historical background and illuminate themes through culture and the arts, grounding students in the facts before exploring more interpretive approaches. In this way, awareness of central currents in art, film, theater, intellectual history and media is developed alongside an understanding of political and social change.

About the Author :

Paul Levine is Professor of American Literature at Copenhagen University, Denmark. Harry Papasotiriou is Associate Professor of International Relations at Panteion University, Athens, Greece.

Review :

"A very appealing and useful text for introductory courses in all the American fields: literature, history, art and social science. The coordination of chapters offers an effective way of introducing students to the benefits of viewing a historical era from the perspectives of several related disciplines." -- Alan Trachtenberg, Yale University

 

"A most interesting, even extraordinary book. Juxtaposing historical and political chapters with chapters  detailing cultural events it attempts nothing less than that old goal of American Studies: to see American culture whole. As a teaching aid the essays are a valuable tool." -- Jules Chametzky, University of Massachusetts Amherst
