|Title: ||HIST 152-01, United States History Since 1877, Spring 1999|
|Authors: ||Huebner, Timothy S.|
|Date Issued: ||13-Jan-1999|
|Publisher: ||Rhodes College|
|Series/Report no.: ||Syllabi CRN|
|Abstract: ||This course is a broad survey of the political, constitutional, social, and economic development
of the United States from the Reconstruction period to the 1980s. We will devote particular
attention to the growth of a corporate capitalist economic order, the emergence of a strong
national government, the rise of the United States as a global power, and struggles to achieve
justice for all Americans.
The basic format is that of a lecture course, but discussion will play an important role. We will
discuss documents, as well as the three supplementary books for the course, at great length.
Class participation, in other words, is important.
You should leave this course with not only a broad understanding of United States history since
1877, as well as with improved oral, written, and critical thinking skills.|
