Now revised--the friendly, easy-to-understand guide to the story of America Since the publication of first edition of U.S. History For Dummies, significant events have reshaped thoughts about everything from oil consumption to mortgages to presidential candidates. This updated guide to the fascinating events and people of America's past and present features new and revised material covering the attacks of September 11th, the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the 2004 and 2008 elections, and other recent events that have shaped recent U.S. history. From pre-Columbus to the American Revolution, from the two World Wars to Watergate and beyond, it makes the topic accessible for students at all levels, as well as for parents and teachers who may need a quick refresher. Steve Wiegand (Hometown TK) is an award-winning political journalist and history writer. He currently writes a thrice-weekly political column for the Sacramento Bee.
