This course will survey the major developments in the two decades following the end of World War II, a fascinating yet misunderstood era when Americans simultaneously enjoyed unprecedented prosperity but grappled with a rapidly evolving domestic landscape fraught with new insecurities. Among the topics covered will be the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement, McCarthyism, suburbia, and the changing role of women. We will also examine other significant aspects of American life during this era, including comic books, the rock & roll revolution, and the rise of television.
