AHG 614 O7A: Contemporary America, 1974-Present (ONLINE COURSE)
July 29, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - August 9, 2019 @ 9:30 pm$424 – $848
The 1960s are rightly recognized as a watershed moment in U.S. history, yet the profound and often tumultuous changes of these years had lasting effects. The Civil Rights and women’s movements continued, and they inspired equality campaigns for other Americans (Native Americans, for example). Growing opposition to Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society and liberal governing principles in general revitalized conservatism, bringing the Reagan Revolution. American power appeared diminished by the Vietnam War, yet the U.S. remained committed to global leadership. The end of the Cold War, wars in the Middle East, and terrorism tested and changed U.S. foreign and military policies. This course will examine the United States as its people and government responded to domestic and global challenges, crises, and changes occurring during the last quarter of the twentieth century and the start of the twenty-first century.
