Recent America The United States Since 1945 by Irwin Unger

For courses in American History.Pulitzer-Prize winning author Irwin Unger provides a compelling narrative history of the American years from the end of World War II to the 21st century. The text touches all major topical bases-wars, economics, women, racial and life-style minorities, cultural trends, demographic evolution, and politics and diplomacy-while telling the story of America's history and placing the themes within a chronological setting. Written with students in mind, the text highlights how economic, demographic and cultural change affected Americans as a whole, rather than one specific group.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
