This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: The 1990s was a lively and stormy decade. It was a time of great cultural change, from the spread of the Internet to the rise of Generation X. On the economic front, both a recession and the longest boom in the nation's history occurred. For most of the 1990s, the United States was at peace, but events such as the Persian Gulf War and the first impeachment of a U.S. president in more than a century made life more difficult. America in the 1990s covers everything from the riots in Los Angeles to the war in the Persian Gulf to the murder trial of O. J. Simpson. Chapter-by-chapter coverage guides young readers through the last decade of the 20th century. More than 100 photographs, as well as pull-out facts and quotations, make this volume an inviting and user-friendly guide, perfect for upper elementary and junior high school students.

Inhaltsangabe: Each decade in 20th-century America is known for having a unique history and a different personality. In the 1920s there were flappers and the Charleston, in the 1950s bobby-soxers and hula-hoops, in the 1970s hippies and disco, and in the 1990s Lilith Fair and the World Wide Web. Studying each decade one by one gives readers the chance to get a true feel for the character and events of the time. "Decades of American History", an exciting new set, encourages young readers to do just that, exploring each decade of the 20th century in all its colorful history. In addition to coverage of each presidential administration, important events, and historical trends, each compelling book includes information on what was happening in the arts, sciences, popular culture, fashion, and music. Each inviting and user-friendly volume includes 100 or more photographs, box features, pull-out quotations and facts in the margin, a glossary, a further reading list, and an index. Designed to be accessible to young readers, these volumes offer a unique way of learning about the history of America.
