A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This ten-volume encyclopedia explores the social history of 20th-century America in rich, authoritative detail, decade by decade, through the eyes of its everday citizens.The history of the United States in the 20th century is not just the story of its famous leaders. It is the story of the laborers caught up in the progressive movement, the soldiers in the trenches, the marchers in the women's and civil rights movements, the minorities fighting for acceptance and legal inclusion, the citizens enduring the Cold War, and other ordinary people living in both ordinary and extraordinary times."Social History of the United States" is a cornerstone reference that tells the story of 20th-century America, examining the interplay of policies, events, and everyday life in each decade of the 1900s with unmatched authority, clarity, and insight.Spanning ten volumes and featuring the work of some of the foremost social historians working today, "Social History of the United States" bridges the gap between 20th-century history as it played out on the grand stage and history as it affected - and was affected by - citizens at the grassroots level. Covering each decade in a separate volume, this exhaustive work draws on the most compelling scholarship to identify important themes and institutions, explore daily life and working conditions across the economic spectrum, and examine all aspects of the American experience from a citizen's-eye view. Casting the spotlight on those whom history often leaves in the dark, "Social History of the United States" is an essential addition to any library collection.Entries cover the lives and contributions of ordinary citizens, social movements, religion, culture, the arts, economic and labor issues, and other aspects of American life across the 20th century.
