This volume of A basic history of the United States commences with The Great Depression and takes us to the mid-eighties. As the author of Basic economics, Clarence B. Carson is well-suited to diagnose the causes of the stock market crash and the years of economic depression that followed, and his analysis is both logical and easy to grasp. Further discussions are equally engaging. These include: The New Deal; The Pink Decade; The Second New Deal; The National Labor Relations Act; the start of Social Security; World War II; The Cold War; Welfare in the U.S. and abroad; the Warren Court; black activism; The Cultural Revolution; Vietnam; the rise of the Conservative movement; Nixon and Watergate; the Carter presidency; and the beginning of the Reagan years.
