American History Now

In the essay The Possibilities of Politics: Democracy in America, 1877-1917, Robert D. Johnston shows how the period the late-19th century planted the social, political, insitutional seeds that grew into modern America. Lisa McGirr takes this a step further, looking at scholarship of the period between the world wars, and finds modern America to be a fully formed relity during this time.
