Class meetings will occur twice-weekly for the lectures and once-
weekly in discussion sections.  Lectures are geared to the political,
economic, constitutional, and social basis of American history from
the Civil War to the present, stressing such events, eras, and
movements as Reconstruction, industrialization, political and tariff
reform, populism, the Progressive movement, urbanization and
immigration, the 1929 depression, the New Deal, two world wars, the
Korean, Vietnamese, and Persian Gulf conflicts, and significant
issues and people of recent decades.  Discussion sections may focus
on conflicting historical interpretations.  Two 50-minute essay exams
plus a two-hour final essay exam for the semester, with each exam
covering roughly ľ of the assigned literature and lectures.  Final
grades will be based (roughly) on a general average of exam
performance, with some evaluations of studentís participation in
discussion sections.
