Noted Historian H.W. Brands details the changes America has gone through since 1945 to reveal the themes and ambitions that have driven America, all while capturing the national experiences of the last six decades to bare the still unfolding legacy of dreams born out of a global upheaval.

 

America Since 1945 is the Penguin Academic Edition of Brands’ bestseller American Dreams, which chronicles the events and circumstances that have guided America from Okinawa to the Great Recession.
