3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Coverage is broad-ranging - the narrative begins in the late 1930s, demonstrating that an understanding of World War II as a transforming event requires discussion of the prior state of affairs, and ends with a consideration of the legacy of the war and its continuing significance. Overall, this book provides an introduction to all aspects of the American experience of World War II."--BOOK JACKET

"In this unique introduction to the representations of the Vietnam War in American history, literature and film, Mark Taylor offers a concise, interdisciplinary approach to this most popular but complex of subjects. His aim is to show the intricate nature of crucial events in Vietnam, indicate the different ways in which historians and other writers and film makers have sought to make sense of them, and explore the sorts of truths which each claims to be telling - how can we know what is 'authentic'?"--Jacket

Religion, culture and politics in the twentieth-century United States by Mark Hulsether( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On issues from A to Z, abortion to Zionism, it is impossible to understand the contours of American political culture without paying attention to religion. Mark Hulsether provides a concise introduction to the key themes, actors, and institutions of religion as they relate to North American culture and society in the twentieth century, using an approach informed by the fields of U.S. religious history and American Studies. His dual goal is to introduce religions on their own terms and to chart their dynamic relations with broader cultural trends and socio-political forces, as understood in U.S. history and the wider interdisciplinary study of North America. Hulsether offers a concise synthetic statement, accessible for readers who are not specialists in U.S. religion. More than other leading books that might serve as introductions to this subject, Hulsether stresses issues of cultural pluralism, conflict, and contestation - especially on lines of race, ethnicity, and gender. He offers a valuable bridge between specialized scholarship in U.S. religion and a wider field of interdisciplinary research on U.S. history and culture and society that often underplays the continuing importance of religious identities and subcultures. Mainline Protestantism, Catholicism, white evangelicalism, the black church and Judaism are amongst the many religious groups treated. Based on the timeline of American history, events are recontextualised and rediscovered, examined from new, religious angles. Readers will develop an understanding of the importance of American religion in the twentieth century
