Summary:
This program explores the period of economic boom that followed World War II. The Fair Deal helped expand America's middle class as millions migrated to the suburbs. However, not everyone prospered in the postwar era. African Americans and other minorities found that racial discrimination let them climb only so far up the economic ladder. Many women, who had worked during the war, returned to domestic life. Abroad, a Cold War began as the United States led the West in opposition to the expanding power of the Soviet Union, and tensions increased with the beginnings of the nuclear arms race. Homeland issues in the 1950s included the segregation of schools and racial injustice -- sparking the Civil Rights Movement. Part of the multivolume United States History Origins to 2000 DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
