Books for Professor Hangen’s Spring 2010 sections of HI 113:

Our textbook will be William Chafe, Harvard Sitkoff and Beth Bailey, editors, A History of Our Time: Readings on Postwar America 7th edition (Harvard University Press).

You should also make sure you have a history survey textbook. If you took US History II at this college or elsewhere and still have a textbook that covers the period of 1945 to the present, then use the one you have.

If you don’t have a survey textbook that covers 1945 to now, then purchase the e-text of George Donelson Moss, Moving On: The American People Since 1945 4th edition (Pearson Longman). You can do that through the bookstore, or directly from the publisher, which gives you online access to the book for several months at about half the price of a printed textbook.

Additional course readings can be found on the web or will be posted online as PDFs; you will need (free) Adobe Reader or FoxIt Reader in order to open and use a PDF document. I recommend that you print the readings if you have your own printer, or bring your laptop to class to access them during our discussion.
