A Companion to Post-1945 America

A Companion to Post-1945 America is an original collection of twenty-six essays by key scholars on the history and historiography of the period. As the twenty-first century begins, post-World War II scholarship joins the historical canon with a wealth of new material. The contributors to this volume are the most prominent scholars in their respective fields, and each essay analyzes and categorizes the historical literature of the post-1945 period over a wide variety of topics. The coverage includes family, the media, ethnicity, labor, social movements, politics, and foreign policy. Each essay contains a select bibliography to guide further research, and the volume includes a review section that focuses on eight popular and influential historical works.

For students, historians, and general readers of modern American history, this resource is a milestone that will set the standard for post-World War II American historiography.
