Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The U.S. is an adaptable and resilient nation, and these thorough entries in the Understanding American History series prove it. Complemented by maps and archival photographs, each title relates the defining characteristics of each time period and the conditions that carved them while also identifying key people and events. The 1960s shows how the decade came to be identified as an era of change as mounting frustration against the war in Vietnam and the desire for civil rights led to rebellion among youth. From the Occupy Wall Street movements to the establishment of the federal minimum wage to the war on drugs, the titles in this series conclude with each time period's legacy. These books keep research interesting.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2010 Booklist"
