H106 | 2801 | Taysom

The course is designed to explore the history of the United States
from the end of the Civil War to the present.  During these years,
our nation underwent a transformation from a predominantly rural
society into one of the most powerful industrial and political
nations.  Special emphasis will be given to American society,
culture, and politics.  We will investigate events in such a way as
to see how and why they occurred and the ultimate consequences of
these events.

There will be three in-class midterms (20% each for a total of 60%);
one comprehensive final (30%); and a grade for attendance and
participation (10%).  The text will be:  "Out of Many", Vol. 2,
brief third edition.
