For students studying history, preparing for exams, writing papers and otherwise engaged in class work, these concise, 'essential' study guides provide just the right amount of information; the brief explanations aren't tedious reading, yet neither do they provide too little information to be of use. Short chapters with sub-headings explore the political social, cultural, economic and philosophical issues and developments that have made an important impact on history--exactly what the time-pressed student needs. United States History Since 1941 covers the European and Pacific Theaters of World War II, the Cold War, the "politics of affluence," the Liberal revival, Martin Luther King Jr. and civil rights, Vietnam, the Nixon reaction, Watergate, Ford and Carter, the conservative revolution including Reagan and Bush, the collapse of European Communism, the Persian Gulf Crisis, and the breakup of the Soviet Union. 112 pages, softcover.
