The United States Since 1901

HIST 240

Section: 01

This course will explore the history of the United States from 1901 until recent times including the economy, social relations, culture, politics, military, and foreign relations. The unifying theme will be the emergence of modern American liberalism during the Progressive Era and its dominance by the mid-20th century. Throughout this period, however, there was active minority resistance to liberal attitudes and policies that culminated in a series of conservative triumphs in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
