Title American century



Edition 1st Edition

Description / Abstract Harold Evans has set out to write what he calls ''an accessible popular political history,'' and has succeeded admirably. The thesis of ''The American Century'' is that this country's rise to power over the past hundred years has brought about its domination of the global economy and international politics. The results of that domination, Evans shows, have been notably mixed -- sometimes, as in the Cuban missile crisis, nearly catastrophic. In spite of America's repeated failures to live up to its own ideals, Evans argues, the ceaseless pursuit of these ideals has resulted in halting yet steady progress toward human rights at home and abroad.
