Editorial Reviews


"This book is truly a survey of twentieth century and contemporary American history with carefully-proportioned sections on political, economic, and social developments. Moss's discussions of famously controversial leaders, decisions, and events are unfailingly judicious. He shows his talent for recognizing the telling fact or statistic. The fifth edition should be the best yet." — Evan A. Thomas, Grand View College
