This course surveys American history from the end of Reconstruction through the present. It places US history in the context of global events. In doing so, it examines the complex ways in which the contours of the American experience have been shaped by global forces and conversely how the United States has influenced the world. Moreover, the course investigates the expansion and contraction of democracy as part of the longer-term process of global revolutionary movements demanding freedom begun with the American Revolution of 1776.
