HS352  America Since 1945     (3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: HS101. Examines two vital threads in post-World War II American history: our evolving international role and the rapidly changing society at home. At one level, it tries to make sense of a bewildering series of important events, including: the Cold War, McCarthyism, the Civil Rights Movement, the War on Poverty, the Vietnam War, the Peace Movement, the sixties counterculture, feminism, Watergate, and supply-side economics. At another level, it asks how these critical events--and broader demographic trends such as the baby boom and suburbanization--touched everyday Americans. How did life for the "person on the street" change during this tumultuous period? IU
