America Since 1945is an engaging narrative from bestselling Historian H.W. Brands that tells of an America at the apex of global power with dreams of prosperity and limitless power as the second half of the century lay ahead. Brands traces the events and their significance, in addition to how they are connected, that have shaped America since 1945. The booktells of a country that had vanquished the despair and poverty of the Great Depression, conquered the evil of militant fascism during World War II and was looking ahead with infinite promise. 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 1945is the Penguin Academic Edition of bestseller Brands' America Dreams, which chronicles the events and circumstances that have guided America from Okinawa to the Great Recession.
