From Library Journal
From 1941 to 1984, the United States achieved an amazing record of economic growth while witnessing the decline of its diplomacy and the fragmenting of its society. Author Chafe recounts the period in an exceptionally well-written study that bristles with telling anecdotes and quotations. His interpretation of events prior to 1968 is fairly routine but is supported with a sparkling density of statistical detail. However, after that signal date, his writing becomes more impressionistic and fails to fully account for the emergence of the New Right. The shift of traditionally liberal Jewish voters and the disaffection of blue-collar workers away from the left requires further research. For informed laypersons as well as scholars and specialists.

Reinterpratation of historical events are evidenced in this book. The book covers that period of U.S. History from the beginning of the Cold War through 9/11 and the Iraq War. This book does a very nice job as well in providing the history enthusiast or an amateur the present schloarly consensus on such major events as the Cuban Missile Crisis, race relations, the Vietnam War, and the women's movement.
It is well written, well documented and highly readable. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a good overview of recent U.S. history.
