This is an introduction to the study of America since 1945 - the period in which the US became a hyperpower. Alternate chapters provide the historical background and illuminate themes through culture and the arts, grounding students in the facts and themes before exploring more interpretive approaches. In this way, awareness of central currents in art, film, theatre, intellectual history and media is developed alongside an understanding of political and social change.
