A History of US: All the People: Since 1945 A History of US Book Ten by Joy Hakim

A History of US is a 10-volume, award-winning series about the birth and development of the United States as related by master storyteller Joy Hakim. All the People, the last volume in the series, covers US History from the end of World War II to the present. This updated fourth edition covers, for the first time, events that have taken place in the past 6 years, including the 2008 election of Barack Obama and the signficance of this election. All the People focuses on Civil Rights in the last half of the 20th Century and the beginning of the 21st, ensuring that students will have a firm grasp on the groundbreaking nature and lasting importance of this movement. Throughout the book, Hakim portrays contemporary American life in a lively, engaging way. Readers will encounter fascinating stories about famous Americans (Joe McCarthy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Nixon), historical events (the Vietnam War, the first man on the moon), and major cultural movements (1960s counterculture, feminism). Interspersed features provide further anecdotes about the characters that have shaped the last 65 years-for instance, one conjectures about what Alan Greenspan might hide in his briefcase; another discusses the life and times of Mark I, the worlds first automatic computer. Sidebars, illustrations, definitions and quotes line the margins, providing illimitable sources of information and entertainment. With a refreshed design, the fourth edition of All the People will continue the tradition of previous editions, serving as an invaluable entry into the history of this nation. Readers will never think of history as boring again.
